June 2014, post & email, from a GlescaPal, Bearsden, Glasgow.
Included among the boys were the McVicar brothers, Ronnie Waugh, Duncan McKellar, Nikki Smith, Jim Merrilees, John Harrison, Sydney Kingsbury, John Thomson, James Mitchell, ? Livingstone, ? Speirs, ? Lockhart


Company Captain was Dick McAllister.  The photo was taken at Kirn Church of Scotland, church hall and the sun shone brilliantly the whole fortnight, For many of the boys it was their first introduction to a palliasse - not a friendly donkey but a sheet stuffed with straw which became your mattress.  The staple diet seemed to be endless loaves of bread smothered with butter and jam - delicious.
