I attended this school in 1950 - 1954 (my father was stationed at RAF Leuchars - Mr Forsyth was still the headmaster - he always amazed me as he could recite the names of all of the islands around the Scottish coast. Happy memories

I am amazed to see how much the Duncan boy in the last row resembles pictures I have seen at about this age. I hope you will be able to have him e-mail me mavis.duncan@sympatico.ca
