This week’s Galloway Gazette Past Picture was given to the paper by Jack Hunter from Stranraer.

It shows the massed ranks of teachers at the Douglas Ewart High School in the late 1940s.

Some of the faces will be very familiar, such as Mr Ganson, Mr Mearns, Mr Edwards and Miss Morrison, Frankie McCall and Willie George in the back row. Mr Maltman, Miss Scott, Miss Williamson and ‘Chazza’ Hyslop in the middle row, Tammy Mowat, Miss Smith, Miss Hamilton, Mr Jamieson, and the headmaster, Mr Geddes, sitting in the middle.

If you have any more names please get in touch with Louise at the Gazette on 01671 404767 or email her at
