Looking For Information On An Old Caithness Motorcycle
Stuart Tod has been contacted by someone looking for any information that someone might have on this motorcycle a "New Imperial" once registered in Caithness SK1606.  The bike was bought 25 - 30 years ago and has been transformed to perfect condition.  A tax disc dating to 1953 is also include in the gallery.  If anyone can shed some light on its history contact Stuart Tod by email [email protected]  We would also be interested to add the information to the photos - also send to [email protected]

Walter Ross and Tommy Mackay was another, These were the 3 men dancing in the photos. A whole lot started but didn't last to end.  Marie Mackenzie lasted a while too I cant remember how long.  Elizabeth Green is dancing in 2 of photos along with Marie.

Early Caithness Cricket Photos

These two early Caithness cricket photos were sent in by Murdo F Tait who used to be known as Murray Tait in his younger days in Wick.  Many of the faces are familiar to Murdo but it is hard to remember that far back.  If anyone else has information about these two photos we will add it to the photos.  Murdo says he is regular visitor to Caithness.org and says perhaps folk in their eighties might remember him.  Lets us know if you do and we will add to this section.  Thanks to Murdo Tait for sending in these excellent photos.

1st CVA - Do You Know More about This Photo?

Taken at Dunrobin, Golspie in about 1890 of volunteers. The picture is said to be of Caithness volunteers and the small caption on the pint says '8TH. 1ST, C V A GOLSPIE'. This may refer to a camp held there - this was quite common - or may have been a group raised in the area. In George Watson's article he describes those Caithness Artillery Volunteers though does not list this particular group.
