'My Old Man'

"My old man was with the Easter Road TA.   I think he may be the second gunner from the right in this group photo."

Ruin

"Is the ruin in the background on Inchkeith?

I've not been on the island since the Second World War when I used to go over on the Royal Engineer's tug at the weekends.

I hope an old gunner contacts the site with further information.

Inchkeith?

Please click on the thumbnail image below to see another photo sent to me by George Robinson.  This was possibly also taken on the island of Inchkeith in the Firth of Forth.
