.Dear webmaister, regarding riverside senior secondary school photo of 1963 class 1a front row number 5 Alan Fraser or fraj as he was better known to his friends sadly passed away on 26th march 2014. I spent many a happy times having a few pints with him in the Albany bar in dalmarnock road in the early seventies when we both played for the darts team. Fraj was an easy going and a nice lad although I hadn't seen him for many years it was still a shock to hear of his untimely passing, sad loss.
