To Camp in Holland
"This photo of 35th
Liberton Scout Troop was taken at Waverley Station when the troop was on
its way to Holland.
We were to spend a week with the Blue Arrow
Troop of Dutch scouts from Haarlem in camp and a week staying with various
Dutch families throughout Holland."
"Our Scout Master was Bill (Massa) Thomson.
I was thirteen and a half years old and it was a great adventure.
In the photo, I'm 2nd left at the front.
The other names that I remember are:
- Tom Bisset
- Dougie Riddell
- Dave Bisset
- Joe Rendall
- George Dempster
- Kenny Samuel
- Ian Hall
- Jimmy Nicholson
- Billy Pollock.
Maybe some of the visitors to the EdinPhoto
site will remember this camp. If so, it would be interesting to read
