I lived next door to Margaret Gauld from 1966 to 1969 and I have very fond memories of Dalavich and the people who lived there. John and Barbara Selfridge were my parents, I'm Nancy

My family lived in Dalavich from 1952 to about 1960 when we emigrated to Australia. My Father was John Walker he operated the horses in the Forestry.
After 3 years we moved to New Zealand. My father passed away in the early 80's.
Looking at the photograph it is hard now to pick out individuals but my brother and I are probably there

If it helps. clicking on "Larger version" just under the frame, pops up the same photo, click on it again to enlarge fully. That may assist in identifying faces.

I am one of the pupils - front row, button through dress. I was living with my grandparents and Aunt and uncle at Fernoch as my mother was seriously ill. I recall many stories about my school days under the lash. Happy to share if anyone is interested

Dalavich School Picture. I see that the intention to add all the names was never carried out. I have added a PDF (see PDF symbol below the picture) and if it is clicked on and opened the picture with numbers against all the people should be revealed.

Can anyone provide names for any or all of the numbered people? If anyone does I will add them to the main text in due course. Thank you.

Dalavich School Picture. I have added in the names provided by Jessie MacLeod but not sure if I have got them in the correct order. Can someone please check and also correct any name spelling as there are many versions of Mac Mc and capitals or not within the name etc?

Added by Norman Davidson on 07 October 2011.
Ernie Maclugash is my dad and Jessie is my aunt.

Going by the age of some of the pupils named in this photo it can't be from 1955 - maybe 1945

Added by Catherine Stewart on 27 December 2017.
I lived in Dalavich from 1953 to 1961 and went to school there. My dad was John McKeand who worked for the forestry commission. My uncle Alistair Morrison also was there. Myself and my cousins Alistair, Fiona and Catriona went to school in Dalavich. My best friend I remember was Mhairi Burns. Happy memories.

My Wife Marion and I lodged with Alice and Johnnie Walker in 1956 before moving into No4A. We left with two Daughters, Linda and Julie, in 1965. I am now 85 and live in Dumfries. Alice used to sing "Que Sera, Sera" beautifully!

Not many with the name of David Main in forestry but recall one who was a Forester in Glengarry in the 1970s and on retiring from there worked as a driver for Macrae and Dick the car people.
