Photos from the past

Postby ex campbeltown lady » Mon Feb 13, 2006 4:52 pm

Hia,
For our first posting on this board I would like to include some old photos which came to light recently. The first is my wifes father Edwin Sams in the Territorial Army in the post war years (he is standing far left). Second is him in his Navy uniform. And third with his wife Elizabeth "Beth" Brodie who was Campbeltown born and raised untill they moved to England around 1954 with their then two daughters, one being my wife Ethel Jewitt.
The only other person in the group photo we know is William Brodie (brother of Beth) sitting third from our right on front row.
It would be interesting if anyone new them or anyone else in the photos.

Yes, JD, falls into a trail of thought I had about the Down Memory Lane feature.

Was thinking if I started a whole new topic called Down Memory Lane I could add photos to the website and announce them on here. At the same time it would encourage people to discuss the photos and hopefully post ones on the forum which could be used on the DML site too - :lol:

Too many ideas, not enough time! :shock: Trying to get a new feature finished off but keep getting side tracked! :shock: :lol:

Meant to say Eric - excellent photos! Is the first one. a photo taken in Campbeltown?

Hi DP,
All we know is the photo is of the Campbeltown territorial Army. Our guess is it was taken locally but are hoping someone can throw more light on it or even name a few others in the picture.

My father is in this picture, as is 4th Gen's, and we have managed to name a couple from looking at this copy.

I think my parents have also have a copy of this picture in the house. We will get back with more names when we have had a good look, and asked around a bit.
