I grew up in Maybole and attended Carrick Academy where I
sat the Scottish Higher Leaving Certificate examinations in
1961; went to work for Scottish Stamping & Engineering Works
in Ayr, where I met my wife. We were married in 1967 and
moved to South Africa on contract to a company in the south
of the country. We liked it so much that we decided to stay.
My sister still lives in Maybole. My uncle was the "
qualifying " teacher at Carrick Academy for many years (
James Bowie ). One of the photographs attached was taken
when I was in his class. I can't remember all of the names
of the pupils, but listed above are the ones I can remember.
