I tried to photograph both sides of every Scott on display at the SOC Annual Gathering at Abbotsholme School (Alfred Scott’s old school) on 28 August 2011, by walking along groups of 5 or more machines snapping the nearsides, then returning along the group ‘in reverse order’ to take offsides.
As is the nature of our very sociable get together, I stopped to chat a couple of times, lost count, so am missing 3 or 4 offsides.
I use the results to keep on file for my own information, and to show to North West members who could not attend. Top of the latter list is our oldest local member, Harry Walton (94), who lives with his wife Hilda in a retirement home near Stoke on Trent, where he loves to keep in touch with all matters Scotting. ‘Yowl’ is a bimonthly favourite and Harry’s daughter Linda & husband Bill, keep him live minded with other items.
I am idebted to Bill Webster (YouTube pseudonym ‘ruziggy’) and Bill’s brother-in-law Peter Robertson (pseudonym ‘mrcatchems’) for creating the YouTube slide show which you can find under “Scotts on Show 2011 – Mrcatchems” or just click on the following link:-
