Hello Richard as the Graemsay photos are from my mothers album I should know the year, It may be
Clara Ritch on the left who was born in 1912 but possibly Gldys Ritch born 1918 and my mother Annabella mary Ritch in the middle was born in 1918 and Jane Ann Sutherland was born in 1893 so I think its about 1926
