THESE youngsters were in the grounds of Glasgow's Royal Hospital for Sick Children in 1927 - but they certainly don't look ill.

The happy bunch are members of the Boys' Brigade, grabbing any vantage point they can to see the Royal procession during the visit of King George V and Queen Mary to the city.

During a busy day, the royal couple opened the Kelvin Hall, placed a memorial stone on the King George V bridge and placed a wreath at the Cenotaph.

That is, perhaps, where the policeman would rather be - he certainly seems none too happy at making sure these youngsters are kept in line.

The kids do look squished into a small space, though that could have been for warmth. Short trousers in February? Brrrrrr.
