The item on “Lawrence mystery” in your Memory Lane section of the Ripley and Heanor News brought back a few memories. There are three Cubs on the left of the picture: Scott Reast, Garth Ethelston and Matthew Hill. The three Beavers on the right are ?, Andrew Hesselden and Nicholas Ganley.
I believe the trunk was found in the loft at Ripley Scout Hut and it was decided to donate it to the DH Lawrence museum in Eastwood. Six Cubs and Beavers were invited to attend the presentation. It must have been about 1974/5. Maybe others can be more precise?
