This photo is of my brother David Linklater's class. I have a copy of it beside me with all the names written on. Further to Bertha Fiddler's message, missing names as follows: back row - 2nd left is Mervin Johnson, the girl 2nd from right is Susan Hurry. (Her brother Alan was in my class).

I'm quite certain that the David Foulis here is David Foulis, brother of John who, in my latter working days at Papdale, was our football coach and who works in Flotta. I think David is somewhere south now.

The David Foulis is actually Malcolm Foulis

Would David Foulis not know if it were David Foulis????

I would agree with bertha, i'm quite sure that the david foulis in this photo is david, malcolm is not in this photo. David went away some time ago.

PS Thanks, Shona. I well remember you too!!! With fondness!

I think the Malcolm is from a different Foulis family. I taught that class for two years, and I am quite positive that the boy in question is David Foulis. He was the kind of pupil you would remember, believe me, in the kindest way! I even have tape recordings of him when he was in p2.

It is David Foulis, brother of John. Why does someone not ask John to confirm it.

Bit of a shock seeing this on the internet! In a positive sense. Two corrections: girl between Stuart Pottinger and Frank Campbell (2nd row) is Jane, not Janet, Ross (ie me); it's John Muir rather than Tommy Muir in the front row. Tommy was a few years younger than John.
Added by Jane Harris (Née Ross) on 01 September 2006
yes it is David Foulis - brother of John - all above info from Bertha is correct - I wonder what she thinks of me!!!! David has been in London for a great number of years now

Does any one know if the Lorraine Tait in the photograph would have gone on to work in an Aberdeen hotel in the early 1980s ?
Added by Isla Manson (nee Sandison) on 19 August 2012
One is definitely my Dad or one of his brothers. He is Merving Walls and if it is not him it’s Alec, Andy or Steven Walls.
They are second on the back row from the teacher.
