KGS Primary (Infants) 1 - 1952

John Groat has asked me to submit his primary school photos to the OIL - there are 4 altogether and I have guessed the classes and estimated the dates with reference to my own school photos
Some known names for this photo are: Teacher-Miss Sutherland; Gary Miller, Richard Gibson, Magnus Brass, Lewis Munro, John Groat
If anyone can give correct class and date and more names we would be grateful
