First of the three seated gents at the front is Ian Farquhar. Ian was still there in 1977 when I arrived for a seven year stint at the Cheesy. It was a good laugh - especially when we filled a vat with hot water and jumped in for a dip on night shift (yes really).

Never made out we were the first Sumteeick. Mind you - we did have eight folk in for a dip one Saturday night after the dance. Five boys and three lasses. But I suppose that was all done years before as well.

Lol ! - surely no Hamish. I reckon you'd have a few juicy tales. I'll keep mine for the forthcoming autobiography. I'm thinking about calling it "Promoted well beyond his abilities" (a comment from a former teacher on a report card)
