This photo of Rothbury featured in last week’s Gazette and an eagle-eyed reader has managed to reveal when and what it was.

Jack Phillips, from the village, told us that it shows the Rothbury Highland Pipe Band with the Cubs and Scouts ahead of them, as part of the ceremony on Whit Monday in 1935 or 1936.

The 92-year-old recalled that it used to take place every year in aid of the RVI in Newcastle.
