"This photo may have been taken at the Boys' Brigade 50th Jubilee in Glasgow, in 1933.

My late father,Sergeant William Stout, 8th Leith Boys' Brigade, is nearest the camera.  He was a member of the Boys' Brigade, both as a boy and later as an officer.

It is the future king (George VI) and queen who are shaking hands with representatives of the BB, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts."
