Photo: An old Caithness Photo But No clues
Date: 1936
Location: Caithness, Scotland
Photographer: Supplied by Noel Donaldson

Noel Donaldson found this one amongst his father's files. It is a postcard but there are no clues on the back as to what the gathering was all about. Possibly a town council affair with presentations to coastguards, perhaps. Might have been taken in the Johnston studio. Can anyone help? Mystery solved - see link. This is the crew of the Longhope lifeboat Thomas McCunn who rescued 41 men from the French Grand Banks trawler Neptunia,which was wrecked on the tail of Brims on 21st. Feb. 1936. They were in Kirkwall receiving awards for this service.
