Dad, Charlie Millar, has given me an update on these people.
Ronnie & Joan Robertson(late of Tormiston Mill, Stenness), ?, ?, Sandy Heddle (late of Queens Hotel, Kirkwall), Charlie Millar, ?. Unfortunately the others he can't remember.

Ronnie and Joan (and sometimes their daughter Joanne) were my neighbours at Quoybanks Crescent for a few years in the early 60s.

Amazing to see a photo of them on the net.

Sandy Heddle married my mother in the 90s and moved to Weymouth in Dorset. He died in 2003. He was very proud of his Orkney heritage and told me of his memories of the raising of the German Grand Fleet. This was a coincidence as my other late stepfather was present as a very young lad on one of the tugs involved which his father was skippering. A lovely picture of the late Sandy.
