I was in 6th year in 68 and though I hardly recognise anyone but Campbell, Des Brown and Mr. McC, could the boy back row 4th from left be William Reid? Also middle row 3rd from right looks like the Murrays.

Several from 'my' year were kept back, but on a closer look I don't think it's Willie from Corrie, and I'm thinking maybe 66, 67? Campbell's big bro Russell was in my class, I was at St. Mike's '62 - 68. I think Campbell is more than a year younger than me..(not that age matters..:( lol)

2nd from left middle row looks like Drew Cochrane, and I remember him and Des Browne were in the same class

After several years visiting and contributing, I viewed this photograph and wish to make a correction, if I may.
John "Fred" McCreadie did not "join the Navy as an Artificier". It was I, his brother James, who joined the Navy as a Radio Operator. John served his Instrument Artificer apprenticeship at the factory.
