Lavington Scouts


Today we have what is very much what we call a ‘we’ll meet again’ photo. You’ll know the Vera Lynn song and if we describe a photo after it, it’s the second line we refer to – ‘Don’t know where. Don’t know when.’

Well, for this photo we certainly have no idea where it was taken and can only get a rough idea of when it was taken. The photo is not well captioned but it clearly shows Lavington Scouts, presumably at a camp for tents are set up.

If we accept the names as correct then we have V Osmond, B Cooper, F Perry, T Andrews, R Huxtable, F Cooper, B Giddings and Alexander in the photo.

Let’s zoom in on some of the scouts. Maybe a reader will recognise them and be able to give us a bit more information.
