This week’s Bits from Bygone Bute photo shows some of the Port Bannatyne Cubs, taken in the early 1950s.

The photo, supplied by Shona Ironside, was taken while the cubs were at camp.

The young woman in the photo is Shona’s mother, Margaret Hunter, who was a cub leader along with Effie McPhail, who became Effie Bell. Shona asks: “Perhaps there are some gentlemen around who recognise their younger selves?”
