Oscar Marzaroli's Castlemilk Lads

Hello. My name is Peter Ross. I'm a journalist with Scotland On Sunday. I'm working on a story in which I am trying to identify and interview the four boys in Oscar Marzaroli's iconic 1963 photograph Castlemilk Lads, which you can see here:

I am in touch with the boy at the front of the picture (now a man in his early sixties) but still need to find the rest. Can anyone help or suggest any leads please? These boys would have been 14 in 1963 and they were all pupils at Glenwood Secondary at Castlemilk. It's possible that the boy looking straight at camera and leaning on his pal's shoulder is called Peter Jackson. But I don't know that for sure.

I really want to make this story work as I think it could be a fascinating tale. If anyone can and would like to help, please email me at

Many thanks,

Lone Groover
