Reunions of retired Bowhill Colliery miners

The photograph on the right was sent to Michael Martin’s Fife Pits & Memorial Book website by one of their regular site visitors - Elaine Tayefeh (nee Millar) from California, USA. Elaine lost an uncle, Alex. (Eck) Millar, in an accident at Bowhill pit in 1932. This photograph includes her uncle Bob Millar (extreme right, back row, see x above his head) at a reunion of retired miners from Bowhill Pit. Elaine thinks it was taken around 1951 or 1952.

Do you recognise any other miners in this group?

The photograph on the left, date unknown, was also sent by Elaine Tayefeh, with her uncle Bob Millar, third from the right, second back row, and with many of the same faces from the 1951/52 reunion present in this group.

Can you help identify the retired Bowhill miners at this reunion or recognise the date/year on which the event was held?
