Ready for the journey back from camp

Boys' Brigade Camp

This photo was probably taken at Cloan Farm, near Auchterarder, a popular destination for Boys' Brigade camps at this time.

The lorry has been loaded and is about to leave camp.  I am told that there was always competition to claim places on the back of the lorry for the journey back to Leith.  I don't know how many places there were, but there would have been.  There were  less 'Health & Safety' rules then!
