I think it looks like my uncle Arnold Grieve in the back row 6th from the left. He worked at Lyness until about 1956/57. His wedding photo is on this site - picture #3141

John, I think the one far right on the back row could be Jimmie Sinclair from Daystar-married to my Auntie Diana

Front row sitting wi his hands clasped across his knees is Jock Johnston, fae Doontroo. Standing on the right edge o the pic is Jimmy Sinclair, fae the bungalow on the Crockness road near Rinnigal. think the fella on the right sitting is Sinclair Sinclair, 5th in from the right, like a teddy boy, the name Sammy Wylie is in my mind, used to run about in a wee three wheeler car. Sitting on the right wi his arms folded might be Jimmy Chalmers.. few more i ken but their names will no come tae me..
