Thanks for the help with the missing names. How could I forget Wallace Hudson, he lived three doors down from us in Inverbrekie Drive. Graeme Hunter and Willie Nichol also ring a bell in my head -don`t forget this photo is 30 years old and I left Invergordon 28 years ago! Thanks again, keep up the good work. Steve.

It’s ok Alan, I think we all know who you meant. Great work and thanks to all of you who have refreshed my memory! I think you and I have helped this site with a great bit of Invergordon History! It’s a pity some of our friends are no longer with us. Thanks again Steve!

The best boxer of all was young Wallace Hudson .....hardy...mad man...

Is the Wallace Hudson referred to in the photo a junior version of the Wallace who was around the same year as me in Invergordon Academy? I left in 1964 aged 15. If it is, the Wallace I refer to would have been in his late 20s in 1978 and indeed is resident in Orkney. Wallace is the brother of Murdo, the late Clayton and Jimmy, the youngest brother.

In the photo is James Hudson, Wallace's oldest son.

James, thank you, I thought the dates were a bit out for it to be Wallace. Pass on my best wishes to him. He would remember me from Kildary or Inverbreakie Farm.
