Where are they now? Well, from a picture published in this week’s Falkirk Herald, two – Bruce Waddell and David Hamilton – are editors of national newspapers: the Daily Record and the Scottish Daily Express, respectively.
And Alan Crow has gone on to great things at the Scottish Daily Mail.
Together, they are photographed on a Falkirk Herald staff night out, from the late 1970s.
So, of the others, any more who remain in the newspaper business?
The line-up reads: Michael Dyer, Ian Ferguson, Bruce Waddell, Bill Higgins, Alan McMillan, Sandy Steele, John McDonald, Frank Thomson, Paul New, Alan Crow, Jim McElroy, Margaret Butterwick, Janice Hepburn, Gail McDermott, Marjorie Carrigan, Harry Johnston, Ken Waddell, and David Hamilton.
