1980 Majorettes

These Blantyre marching girls were out in force in June 1980 for the Summer Gala.

These are the youngster of Mrs King’s High Blantyre Majorettes, the team being one of the highlights of the gala giving a brilliant display.

Lots of Blantyre faces in there! Can you name anybody? Perhaps you remember this? Can you tell me anything about Mrs King?
