Time for a bit of history (makes a change in the run up to Christmas!) and I’ve had this interesting image in from Adam Mayon, who believes it’s of Brownhills Scouts, taken around 1960.
His request is simple:
Can any of your readers identify the scouts in this picture?
I think this is about 1950.
I’ve tweaked the image as best I can and feel sure someone will recognise at least a few of these fine lads.
You can comment here, mail me on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com or buttonhole me on social media.
It’s worth pointing out that Brownhills still has a thriving Scout group.
The Scouts are a fine organisation, giving young folk access to experiences and social events that are unparalleled elsewhere. I know for a fact that John Currie and his group are a credit to our community, and they all work hard to help out at Brownhills events.
If you’ve got a young one you think would enjoy the Beavers or Scouts, why not pop along and find out what they’re about? You can find contact details for your nearest group here.
