Yes Barbara, it is Mary Fergus, I omitted her when putting the information into the site.

Well spotted, the person in the front row is Gwen Milne and not Gwen Mears as she is indeed in the 2nd back row.

Unbelievable!! I am watching a rather boring Super Rugby game in Sydney where I now live and suffering the net I find this school photograph from the early 50s in Kirkwall. Have to confess that I was following my name!! Have never done this previously, but quite amazed and a bit overawed that this photo came up. There is a lot of corporatize stuff with is boring. Its been a long journey since then with some 37 years in Asia, but I can remember most of the people in that photo. Not a bad start in life. I am now sharing this with my grandchildren.

[Glad you are pleased Peter- best wishes, Steven]
