Kids gave a right Royal welcome

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.
