By permission of the Air Force Commander, the Scouts of East Neuk of Fife visited the aerodrome at Leuchars. The party numbered over 70, and were drawn from the troops at Anstruther, Pittenweem, Elie, and Kilconquhar. Mr J. Y. Hunter, headmaster, Cellardyke, as senior Scoutmaster, took charge of the combined troops. On arrival at the base they were received by the chief officer in charge, and were divided into sections under instructors, who conducted them severally through the aerodrome, and explained the main features of the work of the aeroplane and its construction.

The boys were eager, and followed their instructors with rapt attention. After two hours of intellectual enjoyment, the companies re-formed, and marched off to their respective charabancs to the strains of the Air Force band. The difficulties of transport were overcome through the generosity of R. Brown, of Colinsburgh, and Bailie Carstairs, of Anstruther, to whom special thanks are due.
