Ian Gill (RHS 1956 to 1969) sent in this Primary 5a photo taken around 1960. If you are in the photo we would love to hear from you. If anyone knows the name of the bespectacled chap standing next to David Leadbetter, or have any other comments, please use the form below. More boys had joined by the time we reached Primary 7a, see the 1962 photo of William Watsons class. If you were in 5B, with Miss Morrison in 1960, we have your picture too.

Well—that was indeed a blast from the past!!! Strangely I could remember almost all the names apart from the guy next to David Leadbetter.You’re right about Douglas Dooner–you can remove the question mark. I always thought it was Robert Boog but my memory could be playing tricks. I remember going to the opening of the Forth Bridge (road!) with Neil McGilp and great times watching the “Edinburgh Monarchs” speedway team at Old Meadowbank with Neil McBeath.
“The bespectacled chap” memory does play tricks at our age but I’d put money on his surname being Fiskas or something similar.
