1956

"I just picked up your request for photos whilst browsing the website of school memories in Edinburgh.  As far as I know there were no school class photos for 1955 and 1956."

Soccer Team

"However as a 10 and 11 year old I attended the school in both years whilst on an extended visit from Adelaide Australia to see my mother's family. The only pic I know of from that time is this  one of the Bruntsfield School Soccer Team taken on 28 March 1956."

A. Linn

K. Irvine

A. White

E. Brannon

F. Archer

G. Stark

William Stuart

Alistair Macaskill  - I think was the goalie: middle of the back row

J. Archibald

Ross Heard (me) - second from left front row

Mr J Inglis was the Master in charge.

Maybe this picture will  generate memories for someone."

Photographer

"I don't know who took the pic.  It was probably a teacher or a parent. It might even have been my late uncle who played for Hearts in his youth and would have been very proud that his Aussie nephew was learning to play soccer."
