I WONDER if anyone recognises themselves in this old photograph of the Lomond Mountaineering Club. It was taken on a day out in Glen Coe in about 1975. Some had been hillwalking, others had been climbing on the East Face of Aonach Dubh.
I’m the rather gormless looking one with the pipe hanging from my jaw – in the middle of the back row. The long-haired, cocky looking bugger second from left on the front row is my old mate Hamish Telfer.
The guy with the bandana round his head is George Christie and the guy to my left is an old school pal called Raymond Stokes. The guy with the ice axe and climbing helmet in the back row was called Eddie. Other than that I can’t remember anyone else.
Anyone recognise themselves – or their dad? Or even their Grandad?
Would be great to have some kind of a reunion. The Lomonds were a great club…
