This pic was given to me by Cath MacLeman when she ran the Avoch Heritage Museum in the High St. Avoch probably early nineties, My father is 2nd left back row (Fiddler)b.1908, There may be some confusion on the second row as one girl is unnamed.

This is the first photo I have seen of my mother as a child,( Maggie Patience 2nd right on second row.) Her brother my uncle Hugh Patience is second right on front row.

Sonia,I am pleased you were able to see a pic of your mother as a child and I can certainly see the resemblance between Maggie and Hugh, it wa also the first time I had seen a pic of my father as a schoolboy, apologies for the late reply.

Hi James, which Patience was your father, are we distantly related at all.

I think that this is also the first time that I have seen my Aunty Netta as a young girl - Netta Sutherland, second from left on second front row. And surely that is not my Uncle David looking very confident in the middle of the back row. He was the first Sutherland to go to university, though, so maybe that confidence was not misplaced . . . fishers all the way back to the 1790s, I think.

Just a thought some 5 or so years on from my last comment, but Netta Sutherland was born in 1909 and David in 1911. I think the photo may be later than the 1918 posted . . . early 1920s perhaps ?

I don’t suppose the Jane Macleman on the 3rd row could be my grandmother Margaret Jane Maclaman ? B, 1908 ? D, 22/1/1955.
Does anyone remember her ?
