155th Boy Scout Group

The 155th Boy Scout Group (1st Glasgow Jewish) at Garnethill Synagogue, c 1930s.

Founded in 1928, the 155th Scout Group was the first Jewish scout group in Glasgow. It began with fifteen members but numbers soon grew and more Jewish scout groups were set up in other parts of the city.

Many of the boys are wearing kilts as part of their uniforms. To the right, one boy holds the company flag featuring the Star of David just visible on it. The flag on the left appears to be the Union Jack.
