The girl next to Carol Winchester is Beryl Tulloch, their fathers were both coastguards from Shetland and they lived next door to us at the coastguard station at the time of the photo

I think the girl between Lawrence & Linda was Maggie Mackay and I think the Boy between Michael & Marcus was Douglas(?)

My name is Catherine Fereday (not Katherine as in the caption), although these days I'm known to most people as Kate. I'm looking at this image as I sit in my office in Gondar, in the northern Ethiopian Highlands. The marvels of modern technology! Little did I know when the photograph was taken that I would end up so far away. I still remember most of my classmates. I think of Sylvia Rendall from time to time when I feel the dent where her hockey stick met my shin. And I think of Linda Antonio on 7 July (the seventh of the seventh), that being her birthday.

Hi Kate. I didn't hit you that often!! I hung up my hockey stick long ago so no other innocents will be maimed. Great hearing from you. I used to see Mary a lot when 'Woolies' was on the go. Saw the articles about you in the Orcadian. All the best. Sylvia

Huh, you still have a vicious backhand.

This is Primary 2E at some school or other. Not Stromness. Is there a school in Kirkwall?

[It is the infant department at Papdale -Steven]
Added by Ian Hourston on 15 October 2009
This photo was taken at Papdale Infants School in Kirkwall and, judging by the lack of leaves on the trees, it must have been taken early in 1968, during our second year in Infants. My twin sister (Mary) and I were six years old (and turned seven in April that year).
