Thank you to Alistair Sime who tells me that he is a mate of Ian Archibald, the rider on the front-right in this photo.

Rider Identified

"You  have a question mark against the rider at the back-left in this photo.  In fact, it is Alan Douglas, a regular rider for Scottish Rangers at Harrison Park."

Alistair Sime:  September 17, 2015

Alistair added:

Seafield Saints

"I rode for Seafield Saints between 1966 and 1969. but only visited the Liberton track once during that period.

We rode on the Leith Links track, along with:

- Alan Douglas

Ian Archibald

Billy Penny

Ralph Cook

Jonny Miller

and others that I can't recall.

I wasn't very good so I didn't progress like Alan, Ian and the great John Murphy (who Ian still meets regularly)."
