John (Ian) Davie

Longniddry, East Lothian, Scotland

Thank you to John (Ian) Davie who wrote:

Around 1942-50

"I attended Craigmillar Primary School from c.1942 to 1950 when I lived at Station Road and then Wauchope Avenue.

Residence in Craigmillar was interspersed for a year or so when we moved to Burdiehouse and attended Prestonfield Primary School.

I won a bursary from Craigmillar Primary School to Portobello Senior School (or as it was then called 'Portobello Higher Grade').

I'll be seventy two years old in November  and  glad that I received a good old-fashioned Scottish education."

Thank you to Dave McKinlay for posting this reply to Bobby Inglis in the EdinPhoto guestbook.

Dempsters

"Hi Bobby.

You mention Dempsters. Would one of them been Jimmy, an amateur boxer in the mid-1950s?  He would have been your age, and went to the Marischal.

I am three years younger than you, but have a brother your age who knocked around with Jimmy Dempster.  I think they both served in The Royal Scots, Suez Canal, 1956.  I'll check that one out with my brother next time I talk to him.

I'd be interested to know if its the same Dempsters."

Our Family

My three brothers and I went to the Marischal.  My brothers were:

 James (your age)

 Billy (a year younger then me born 1938)

Tommy (the youngest, born 1947).

We lived in Bingham.  Now, we are all in New Zealand.  We've lived here since the early-1960s, except Billy who lives up in Colinton, Edinburgh.

Class Photo

"I was born at Wauchope Terrace and attended Craigmillar Primary School from 1952 to 1958.  Sadly, I never did get a photo of my class when I was there

Is there anyone out there who may have a copy of of a photo?  I remember Miss Telford and Mr Mutch were two of my teachers."

I cant remember many of the names from my Primary Classes.
