Tommy, well done I think you have got us all correct, there was two I was not sure about.........David Muir (Cliff ?) and Peter Sinclair who I put down as Brian.
Out of a total class of 33 I reckon 9 are no longer with us.

Way back in 1960 I was an apprentice in Glasgow working at David Rowan & Co. Marine Engineers. I remember very clearly, one day a new apprentice arrived to join us and his name was David Muir from Sanday. I guess he must have been about 16 at the time would it be the same as the young David in the photo ? Over the years I often wondered where his career took him. As was the way, we often were moved into a different sections of the works and we just never saw each other again but I never forgot his name he was a real nice lad. The following year I went off to sea as a junior engineer and enjoyed a long career.
