In response to viewing the Image Library, Hamish Leslie sent an e-mail with this photograph attached and the following comments. "I am the Troop Leader H Leslie referred to in objects 2001-099-001-001 to 106.
I never received these photos which I think should have been sent to me by Group Scout Master Leonard Will senior or by Scoutmaster Fred Savage. I am not familiar with a number of the photos but some, which I had not seen before, are of great interest to me. These are a sequence of photos taken in 1955 when the Dornoch Scout troup camped near Aviemore. At that camp a number of the most senior of the troop climbed Cairngorm. I have the final photo in the sequence and I attach a copy in both pdf and jpg format. I am afraid that the quality is not good, but I only have a 3" by 2" matt image.I am not sure how you normally caption the photos but I suggest for the attached photos the following caption [See above]

The caption of this picture shows "Year: 1930", but as Hamish Leslie says, it should be 1955. I can't confirm that, but it is plausible - I would have been 14 at the time, and that looks about right. ~ Thank you I have amended the date. Administrator.
