This is only a guess, but I feel, not far off the mark.
Once upon a time, this group of very elderly gentlemen met on a daily basis at the "Hut" on the West Pier, where all the world was put to rights.
They were affectionately known as "The West Pier Parliament".(in Kirkwall of course)

Can anyone add farm names to these chaps. ?

Certainly was the men at the pier - not county show men. Peter Harcus should be Hercus

Is that Peter Hercus, or his brother Jock?
