Is the "?" at the end of the 3rd row not John Calder the son of Alastair Calder the then Headmaster of Embo school? I hear he has retired to Dornoch and is now living in Miss MacKenzie's old house. Give him a ring to confirm or deny and he might help with the other "?". Regards.
Murdo Macgregor not Sandy

Many thanks for the correction - Administrator

I think the "?" at the end of 3rd row is George Munro, one time chairman of the Heritage Society.
