Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England

Thank you to Allan Dodds for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above

Broughton Place Church

Scout Troop

"Above  is a copy of a photo that I was commissioned to take of Broughton Place Church Scout Troop in around 1961." *** (Please also see below)

The Scoutmaster

"The Scoutmaster in the photo at the top of this page also appears in this group outing photo taken about five years earlier.

Group Outing  -  Broughton Place.  Do you know which group this was and when the photo might have been taken?

In this group outing photo, he is in the centre of the front row.  The name Bill Aitken rings a bell, but a distant and faint one, I'm afraid."

Allan Dodds, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England:  November 3, 2011

Date of the Photo

Update 1

*** There seems to be some confusion as to the date of this photo:

  -  Allan Dodds (above) believes that he took the photo around 1961

  -  but Edward Dodd (below) believes that it was taken around 1945-46.

Date of the Photo
Update 2

*** Thank you to Gus Coutts who wrote:

"The most likely date for this photo is around 1961 as the berets worn by the scouts in the 2 back rows weren't introduced until the 1950s, when they replaced the old wide-brimmed hats."

Gus Coutts, Duddingston, Edinburgh

Broughton Place Church

Scout Troop  1945-46

Broughton Place Church Scout Troupe, around 1961

 

Thank you to Edward Dodd for providing the names below.

Edward added:

"It's been years since I last saw this photo.  It was taken prior to the Troop going to Austria in 1945-46.

I will let some of those in the picture know about your site and they might be able to fill in the question marks.

Unfortunately, Bill and Ronnie are now dead.

The rest of the Scouts are scattered all over Britain, but the majority in this picture get together once a year, in Edinburgh."
