Scouts go camping

It’s about 1956 – certainly the mid-1950s and the scouts are preparing to head off for a camp. Their transport – a lorry, is parked up behind the scout building – the Workmans’ Hall and the scouts are, perhaps, finding a suitable spot on the lorry for the journey.

What a lovely cheery photo of the lads, who are all going to travel in the back of that lorry. Health and Safety? Well, we didn’t worry about it back then.

We can name a few of these lads (thanks to Phil) but we need help with more.
