Scouts Outing, Early 1950’s

This wonderful photo is Stonefield Parish Church scouts on an outing to Ayr, early 1950’s. Blantyre lads , perhaps born in Wartime years. John Brownlie is the scout leader on the right with hat and glasses.

There’s no mention of the boys names, so perhaps it’s YOU, or you recognise a father or grandfather?
