TOMORROW is Port William Sports Day and the first day of its annual carnival, so we had a trawl through The Galloway Gazette picture archives and came up with this snap of the village sports committee in the 1950s.

The names are:

back row, left to right, Henry Stewart, John Wallace, Stuart Mactier, Bob McCracken, Jimmy Brawls, Sam Murphie.

Middle row, Jim Wallace, Bryce Walker, Peter Walker, Tom Drysdale, Robert McMaster, Robert Findlay, Stuart McDowall, Sam Carruthers.

Front row, Jack Murray, Willie Wallace, unknown, J S Kinnear, Mac Wallace, Harry Dawson.

Two weeks ago we printed a picture taken at the Galloway Pageant in the early 1960s. Lily Templton from Newton Stewart called in to the Gazette office to give us the following names: ? Smith, M Morton, L Templeton, M McKie, C McLaughlin, L McKie, Ellis Nicholson, Sheila Birch and E Milligan.
