I'm having a wee problem with your identifications Ian, mainly because barely a dozen faces are familiar to me, but also because the only distinct 'row' is the front one. Your head-count seems to include the small person peering over the shoulder of the bearded man in the black pullover. (Camera-shy perhaps, or just a curious onlooker?)

i left Stromness Academy in 1982, interesting to see all those faces again! but nostalgic good old days.....hmmm..i dunno?

I'm still having trouble fitting names to faces - apart from the dozen I already know of course. If Steven will wear it, I'll do what I should have done here, and post a pic with numbers attached.
