Just wondered if anyone could confirm who the young man in the background with the golf bag is? I think it's my dad (David Kennedy) who recently passed away, however not sure. I know my dad did speak of Bing Crosby' s visit. Thanks. Emma

Davy Kennedy leaning against the wall with John Allan Matheson standing next to him. Could be Dr. John MacLeod between them looking to the left and perhaps Murdo Bain's head appearing just above the shoulder of the gentleman with very little hair.
