Ian Ross of the 1st Leith Boys' Brigade Company Ex-Members'  Association wrote:

"This photo was taken in Victoria Park on the day of the Annual  Boys' Brigade Inspection on April 28, 1917.

The Inspecting Officer was Brigadier-General E Morton, commanding 24th Reserve Infantry Brigade. The 1st Leith was actually the largest Company on parade that day."
