Ritchie (teacher and game song expert) and Margaret Hunter "Peggie" MacGillivray, a schoolgirl at Norton Park. Ewan McVicar writes of MacGillivray, now (as of 2005) Margaret Currie: "A wonderful informant and performer, she is melodic and confident in her performance and articulate and clear in her accounts of how the songs were used."
