Guides in photo identified

In our last issue we published a photograph of Havelock North Girl Guides and Brownies taken during the 1920s. We asked whether anyone could provide names for the girls and their Guiders. Mrs May Lindsay (White) has come forward and given us all but eleven of the names and we now publish the photograph again, larger, with the names that Mrs Lindsay has provided, in the hope that someone may be able to fill in the gaps.
