I think this is actually 5B. There was also a 5A class. These would almost all have started their first Kirkwall Grammar School year in 1964. The starting classes would have been 1AL (Latin & French), 1A (French & Technical) & 1B (Technical only). (These were graded according to 11+ intelligence tests done at end of last primary year.)
Some of these also appear in the 1AL picture of them- see picture #1468.

How great to see my old pal Stewart Gaudie after all these years here in the spingtime of his years! Hope he made it back to Orkney after all those years in Abingdon and Wallingford.

I think that this is a mixture of 5AL, 5A and 5B Stewart. Erlend Tait,Carol Swanney and others were in the AL class, I was in the A class and others photographed here were in the B class.

Is that Carrol Swanney from North Ronaldsay that went to college in Aberdeen in 1969 1970? Where is she now?
