Yea, agree with the ID of Alan Craigie & Angus Windwick. Front row - (L-R)Norman Archibald, Stuart Leslie & Jim Sangster. Could it be Mel Harcus with his head leaning forward?
Added by John Foulis on 03 March 2009
I think it looks like Norman Archibald between Alan and Angus, then Stewart Leslie, could be Malcolm Sutherland (Stun) at the very back then Jim Sangster

Aye your right, and I think thats Ian Hutcheon writing down the results and looks suspiously like Sandy Mconnachies ganzie at the scales.

Sandy McConnachie on the left and Ian Hutcheon doing the weighing in.
Could it be Hilly peepin over Stuart Leslie's shoulder? Might be Fanta looking in from the right.

Is ther a young Hilly behind Stuart Leslie and Fanta on the right leaning forward in front of Sandy Nicholson in this one?
Added by David Pottinger Jnr. on 04 March 2009
Sandy - it looks like another of the Windwick clan in the background behind Jim Sangster's head - isn't that Norman facing the camera third from the right ?

Sure is Whassigo. But he was no good at fishing!
Added by Sandy Windwick on 07 March 2009
another look and i think that might be Mel Harcus on the far right and Billy Sutherland above him
