When first posted on the Archive the title of the photograph was already given, but the rest was a mystery. Alan Franks advised : “This is a photograph of 1st St Helens (Liverton Mines) Troop Baden Powell Boy Scouts Football Team 1919-1920. My dad George Franks is the small lad 3rd from right, he would be 12 or 13 years old at this time. I have no further information.” Derick Pearson assisted with: “Alf Watts is first left on the photograph. He worked in the Stockyard at Skinningrove on the side press and 12 road saw as well as other areas.”

    I didn’t realise that Liverton Mines had had a Scout Group in earlier years, because in the early 1950s, I lived in Liverton Mines and joined Carlin How Scout Group, then several other lads from the village Joined as well: one being Mike Matthews who now lives at Skelton, after a while, the numbers coming from our village meant that we had enough lads to FORM OUR OWN LIVERTON MINES TROOP!
    What a smashing picture above! Danny Plews.
