I think the one on the left is Hazel McPhail and the one on the right may be Margaret Shand.

My brother Jim lives in Dundee - a very hale and hearty 72 years of age. I saw Margaret and Hazel at the reunion in 2004, and Margaret's brother Billy was at the recent reunion. He said Margaret was fine and living in Inverness.
