My Class

"I was born in Edinburgh in 1942 and attended Sciennes School from 1947 to 1932.  I'm in the middle of the front row, wearing the dark tie, in this photo:

I must have had the photo at one time.  It's great to see it again after all this time, with all my classmates and especially our teacher Miss Clapperton who I remember very well.

If I'm not mistaken,  George Ramsay, who supplied this photo, is also in the front row.   He's on my left side, second from the end, with the dark curly hair.
