Anne McCauley Aren't you Charlie Smith's sister? Did he write the best seller? The English master wanted a signed copy!
George Riddoch better. Known as ridgy Oct 29 2015 8:16 PM
Attended the GordonSchools from 1939 till 1951. Is anyone there old enough to remember me
Brian Sandison Oct 01 2015 7:05 PM
I remember about half the faces in Stanley's photo of 1A boys 1959/60 and a few more of the names. I'm sure 3rd left,back row is Dougie Kerr. I met him about 10 years later in Salisbury where he was serving with REME. We lost touch when I was posted overseas.
I should have been in that photo but was probably on one of my regular sick-days off.

I studied at The Gordon Schools from 2004 to 2009, before going on to do a HND at Aberdeen College; now I'm doing my Honours year at Abertay University!

I was briefly at the Gordon Schools from 1968-1969 before my father (Maitland Roger) died and we moved away. We resided at Firhall Farm. I am looking to get in touch with the Paterson family who lived at the end of our driveway.
