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 Troop.

"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 their comments.
