  1. Hi Paul, if I remember correctly you can just see the tape for the medal around his throat. He didn’t want to boast about it and hid it around his back. They went to Blantyre after living in Twechar. Gran & Grandpa are buried in High Blantyre Cemetry up against the back wall beside a tree. ( James & Mary MacLachlan).


  2. Hi, I’ve come across your site while looking for information about my dad. Somewhere we have a photo of my dad, Robert Summers & his stepbrother, Andrew MacLacLachlan. Dad said he was Dux at High Blantyre school, he said he put the medal round the back of his neck for the photo. I wondered if you had come across those names? Around 1926 – 1928. I’ll look out photos and will post if I can find.


  3. James GRAY was a teacher there about 1950-55ish. He has been looking for photos to go with his life story of a school teacher and Inspector. He loved the school….except the snakes. Do you have any photos in stock of the school then??? Thank you. Robyn Shaw


    • Robyn – James may use any photos from this website for telling his story. I hope to tell the detailed history of St Josephs shortly, but theres a good article on the early huts put up on the site today.


  4. If you are looking for older pictures check out my web site
