This photograph, taken at the Group's Headquarters at Station Road, Beeston, gives a good view of the 'Bridge' which featured at one end of the main hall and was used in the flag ceremony at meetings.
Also to be seen is at least one of the two County Flag camping trophies won by the Senior and Junior Sections respectively, earlier that year.
