Kirkwall Grammar School Class 2G 1974

All now highly successful pillars of society - Class 2G

Back row L to R. Kenny Hay, Derek Ward, Irvine Budge, Keith Foubister, Kenny McLean, Norman Gibson, Brian Kynoch, Vince Mainland, Colin Sinclair, Michael Walker, Ian Campbell. Middle row. Alan Bradley, Bruce Alexander, Wendy Campbell, Margaret Cameron, Kay Peace, Linda Antonio, Alison Drever, Dave Gray, Rodney Hume, Gifford Johnston. Front row. Lindsay Smith, Laura Gibson, Christine Rosie, Pat Lapsley, Margaret Kemp, Trudie Huchison, June Hewison, Sylvia McDonald, Carol Winchester, Mary Flett, Helen Skea, Sheila Barclay.

While looking at the photo it's interesting to note that a number of those pictured run very successful businesses, some are teachers, at least one is in the army, two are farmers, two have important jobs with the council, a couple are at sea, some went into nursing, one yaps on Radio Orkney and two ended up getting married to each other. All said and done - I think we turned out not too bad.

I must have missed this one being taken.
Anyone else remember any of the nick names?
Added by Jeff Miller on 30 December 2006
I resisted the temptation to put in the nicknames Jeff. I thought that some of them might have seemed a bit ....err uncomplimentary. But I don't suppose anyone is really that bothered. E mail me and we'll swap nickname lists.

I remember this photo being taken and have a copy of it. It is strange looking at it now and realising that I now work in the Council Offices and have done so for the last 28 years, makes me feel old.

That bushy-haired Gray boy in the middle row looks a bit dodgy. He'll be trouble later in life - you mark my words.

Hi Mike - Yes your dad was who I was thinking about when I wrote that. Haven't seen him for years but tell him Grayo says hello.

I really loved those boots - I don't think I could walk in them now - probably couldn't at the time either! Photo made me feel very nostalgic - it really doesn't seem that long ago.
