Hi Billy
Are you sure thats no me dad Jim Moar standing next tae Jim Nicolson and no David Stanger, no sure, but never seen the photo before

My mother is the Tess Slater (no c) at the end of the front row, sister of Barbara and Victor. She did names for me about a year ago so will check for matches.

Yes they were in Rendall because my mother went to the Rendall school with them and when they moved to Orphir, my mum, Jean Moar used to visit them.

My mother's list of names agrees with the one above, so David Stanger in the back row and not Jim Moar. My grandparents James and Jessie Slater bought Hogarth in Rendall about the time they married in 1921 but then moved back to Orphir, home parish for both of them, in 1942 to take on the tenancy of Yarpha which they bought after Storer Clouston's death.
John - I will pass on your compliment to my mother! A lot to thank her for - sailing very close to the wind there! But I've had the 'My so like yir mither' comments ALL my life so well used to it.

The Slater's were at Hogarth in Rendall before they went to Yarpha in Orphir in the 1940's

The Nan Scollie in the photo is she related to a Gladys Scollie?
Added by Gary Scollie on 10 September 2011
Gary - my mother doesn't know of a Gladys Scollie but Nan Scollie was from Millbrig in Rendall and born around 1926 if that helps.
