My best friends were Jimmy Gibson and Duncan Webster and we kept in
touch for several years after I left Orkney in 1951. I'd love to be in
touch with them again if that's possible. I have never been back since
1951 but it is a mission of mine to return sometime and I fully intend
to do so.
Best regards.
Larry [Lawrence] Drummond. '

If you are Jimmy or Duncan or a relation of them, pass this on. Larry's email address can be found by clicking on his name, above this picture.

We would like to know if James Gibson had a relative who left the Orkney Isls in December 1929 to live in Australia. We would love any information.
Ha ha my Dad you looks so happy
