I can help!! My Dad (Dave Partner) says it was 1967, the year Brian Findlay's son was born. It was the Christmas night parade. And he says it's John Learmonth (2nd from right, front row) not D Learmonth!

Thanks for that, Erica.

No problem, Dad happened to be in the house while I was looking at the photo - he soon put me right!!

Give your Dad my regards. I probably haven't seen him since playing in this band - frightening to think that's forty years ago. This is the only picture of the band from that era that I have with me in it.

Can your Dad throw any light on the other band photo I posted? (www.orkneycommunities.co.uk/imagelibrary/picture/number3009.asp)
