The Missing Photograph’s Companion

Back in May we talked about trying to find an old photo that was taken of the Troop in January 1926 (as we now know). We had a vague photo of it and that was all.

It was taken to be presented to the Church’s Vicar, Fr. Nash, who was moving to a new post in Devon. We think he got a copy and the Church kept one as well. At the same time a photo of the Church’s Guides was also taken and now this photo has turned up! It was found down the back of a cupboard in Church.

However it has not stood the test of time too well.

As you can see part has been torn away and it is quite dirty. Fr. Nash is just about visible in the middle and I’m guessing the lady beside him is his wife.

Wouldn’t it be great if there are still other copies in existence. It would be great (but highly unlikely) if the negatives could be found!

Anyone who knows anything about these two photos, please get in touch with us here.
