Susie Johnson
That’s a tram body in the background, also every chance they were at Robin Hole which is the Leeds county campsite.

Think I lost my last comment! Will try again. Thanks a lot Susie for that info it makes sense it was a tram body and yes they may well have visited Robin Hole although I never knew about that place.

Re R199
Scout troops, Rawdon.
I was a member of the St Johns Henshaw 10th Airedale from 1950 until 1960 or there about – cubs and scouts.
I lived in Canada Crescent, and remember the two Mallinson Brothers who moved from the New Estate Markham Avenue into Canada Crescent by the junction of Canada Drive, backing onto Canada Terrace. Their house had as original occupants the Brown Family 3 boys-1 girl and after the Mallisons the Chew Family – Boy and girl/ dad was Jack a fireman , lived on the ‘BELL’ retained and could often be seen dashing down Quakers Lane on his bike to make the first fire engine crew, out of the Green lane/ New roadside fire station.
My information is about the Mallison Brothers in about 1951/52 they started up the 17th Airedale scout troop, as leaders their ages would be about 23/21.
One of the original scouts was Derrick Lee and Cherrie Lee – Cherrie being the older of the brothers [actually there was Cherrie, Derrick, Brian and a sister- they lived on Markham avenue-Original neighbours of the Malinsons]
The 17th, was started up for the Rawdon boys of the new estate and Upper Rawdon as the only scout troops at the time were the 16 Airedale Queen Street, Yeadon and the 10 Henshaw, Yeadon.
In times gone past Cragg Baptist Church, Rawdon, had a troop – I have no history and was not functioning (somewhere in my mind is the title 4th/5th Airedale).
