"I saw these kids going into the Kirknewton store after school one spring day in 1959.  They'd be in their 60's now.  Always wondered how their life's turned out."

 He thinks that one of the other boys was called Raymond Dibben.  The girl is Raymond's little sister, Margaret Dibben

Thank you to John Douglas who wrote:

Four Children

"I'm more than happy to put names to all of these children since I attended the same primary school and indeed was in the same class as some of them.

From left to right they are:-

Grahame Roy

John Coutts

Raymond Dibben

-  Margaret Dibben (Raymond's younger sister).

I don't know where any of them live now, but I was contacted,  back in 2011, by Margaret Dibben (now Margaret MacAloon).
