    I think that it could be Provost George Cameron and not Provost Robert Hay in this picture. However as it happened over 40 odd years ago my memory might be playing tricks!

    Well spotted Vi. They do look very alike from this distance. We have other photos with Bob Hay in his provost robes and he looks almost identical to this one. I checked the names with my husband Forbie Urquhart and he made the same mistake! However, I have cheked dates and found that Bob Hay did not become provost until 1964, so this is undoubtedly George Cameron. You will see I have made the necessary correction.
