Four Brothers

"Here is a photo of four brothers, all dressed in Royal Scots' uniforms.  The photo was taken in August 1939 at Jerome's studio, 79 Leith Street."

The Royal Scots were also known, at various times, by the nicknames:

-  'Pontius Pilates Bodyguard'.

-  'The Green Brigade'

-  'First of the Line' and

-  'Hebron's Regiment.'

I mistakenly referred to this Regiment as the 'Royal Scots Guards' when I added this page to the web site yesterday, and telling me that there was no such Regiment. 

In fact, I should have referred to the Regiment as 'The Royal Scots', and I've now done that above.

Terry added:

" 'The Royal Scots' are known as:

-  'Pontius Pilate's Bodyguard'

-  'First of Foot' and

-  'Right of Line''

The Royal Scots are the oldest Regiment of Foot in the British Army."

The four brothers in this photo are the Sneddon brothers.  They used to live in the High Street, Edinburgh, part of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh.

They are:

-  Robbie.

-  Jimmy.

-  Tom.

-  Bill, my Dad

High Street Buskers

"The Sneddon family helped run Stewart's Bar in Drummond Street, for a while.  Auntie Bella (Hope) (a sister) was a popular barmaid in the Wee Windaes.

We know little of their time in the  High Street, except they busked a bit, they all had braw voices and put on little shows in and around the High Street, for donations of course.
