Railway Picnic

"This photo was taken in on a railway picnic outing from St Margaret's Railway in 1947, when I was seven years old.

I think the photo would have been taken in Peebles, but I can't be sure.  That's where we used to go on railway functions.

My mother, Catherine (Kate) Hastie, is standing second-left at the back.  My brother, Jim, 9 years old, is standing in front of her.

I'm bottom right, sitting on the grass, looking sorry for myself, holding a stick and being threaten by the boxer beside me."
