    In addition to the links that Scotty sugested there is a link in this forum for Butchers of Inverness although not much in it. https://caleythistleonline.com/topic/29815-inverness-butchers/ There is a mention of Munro and Coffey Butcher in Dalneigh, I don't remember the Munro but did know Mike Coffey who had the butcher shop in Hilton. He died earlier this year but his son also Mike stays in Inverness and works for John Munro Butcher in Dingwall.

    I found a residential and business directory for Inverness for 1935-36 online. It confirms A Munro, butcher, at 16 Innes Street (which was a residential street of houses). But none of the many butchers' businesses in the town had "Munro" in the name, so I guess that at the time he was working for one of them. Buying a van or two is the sort of thing you would do if you were starting up your own business, so finding a business directory for 1938 or 1939 could be very useful. (Later addition: Duh! I've just seen that the directory that IBM linked to lists businesses as well, on the appropriate streets.) Similarly, copies of the "Inverness Courier" for that period - which are not online, AFAIK - might carry adverts for the business, though perhaps just a few, around the time of startup.

    May I suggest the Local History Forum and Inverness Then and Now groups on Facebook. These are both full of folk with knowledge going way back ! https://www.facebook.com/groups/Invernessthenandnow/ https://www.facebook.com/InvernessLocalHistory/

    • Inverness CT (4) 0-V-0 (2)Clyde - C/Cup - Report
      Let's be frank, this was a rank rotten performance with Inverness looking like a second division Welfare team. That's maybe doing Welfare league sides a disservice such was our inability to play football. We struggled badly to create anything worthy of note and Clyde looked more likely to score from open play than us. We had MotM Mark Ridgers to thank for a couple of great saves, one in particular warming the palms of the home fans when McStay let fly from 25 yards. We couldn't muster any decent chances in 93 minutes of football. Thankfully, our penalty kicks were brilliant, absolutely clinical and with Ridgers making two superb saves we go into the semi-finals with Raith Rovers, Patrick Thistle and the Rangers u21 team.

    • Inverness -V- Clyde - Challenge Cup - Preview
      Bully-off against the Bully Wee on Saturday is at 3:00pm at the Caledonian Stadium with the visitors in the middle section of League1 and Inverness in the middle of a shocking slump. I don't even think we can blame HMRC. It's a break from League business though as we enter the quarter finals of the Challenge Cup, this year sponsored by Tunnock's Caramel Wafers and if you are quick off the mark you might even get some freebies prior to kick-off.

    • Arbroath 3-V-0 inverness CT - Report
      SMOKED: Arbroath pulled level on points with Inverness as our season disintegrated at Gayfield. A humiliating 3-0 defeat to a well organised part-time outfit will surely have repercussions. Scott Stewart scored in the first half and a second half penalty was converted by Bobby Linn the bin man. The thrashing ended with substitute Omar Kader adding a third with 4 minutes remaining.
