Margaret Lehman Nimmo has sent in this photo of her brother, Jim Nimmo.
Margaret added, “This photo was taken 1960/61ish. It’s my brother who was Scout Master and a trophy won by the High Blantyre Scouts. Unfortunately he cannot remember exactly what the trophy was for, you may even know yourself with so much information on hand about Blantyre’s history. Thanks again for all the interesting articles, I know a lot more about Blantyre now than when I lived there.”
The photo was taken at 125 Kirkton Avenue High Blantyre. There is a pigeon coop in the background in the neighbours yard. Jim is a direct relation of the Nimmos formerly of Auchentibber. It is of no surprise that a member of this family is holding a trophy, given the history in this ancestry line of competitive sportsmanship.
