Back row, 5th from the left is michael marshall, elder son of the rev.john marshall rector of st olaf's episcopal church in kirkwall.
I am pretty sure 5th from left in the front row is Sheila McConville and 3rd from the right is Susan Rennie. Could the girl between Valerie Clunes and Ruth Watson be Marjorie Linklater? I really should know but I only think that Wishart Rosie is 4th from left in the back row and could that be Christopher Zawadski between Michael Marshall and Roy Jezek?

Far left in the back row is Wishart Rosie and I think the surname of the girl between Ruth and Valerie was George.

I did wonder if it could have been Wishart on the far right but I really do not think it's him on the far left as you look at the photo. As we were a formidable pairing for three-legged races I really should know but......

Sorry meant far right. I think the girl was Vaila? George.

Great to see all the old classmates after such a long time, happy days! We had some great times at KGS and some pupils even learned a lot and went on to do great things!

I would love to know where everyone is now.

It was a great class. I suspect many are like me and living happily in retirement----with less time to spare than I ever had when I was working!!I live in Fordoun near Laurencekirk. I keep in touch with Wishart. He lives in Mintlaw and right now is in China at the Olympics.

Another class member who who visited the Olympics! - in my case Hong Kong to watch horses - not quite retired yet - living and working in London. Where is the anonymous person who wanted to know where we all are?

I think Wishart was just visiting, but it is Wishart so who knows!!
