'Boys Ploughing Match, South Ronaldsay, with Miss Kerr, producer,
watching in the background'

The date is a guess. Anyone recognise the faces?

The boy ploughing is Duncan Swannie and his dad, Jimmy Swannie is assisting.
The year I would guess would be around 1968

Duncan is not that old, photo taken early 1970s
