The boy is Bob Collins, son of Robert Fitzsimmons Collins and Bertha Smith. The uniform was the one in use during the time just before WWII. The scout troop was 345 which was dropped when the scoutmaster was drafted. The car was not the family car, we owned a 1937 Chevrolet swhich Dad put on blocks and it sat out the war in our garage.

Robert Collins Hi Mary Smith My name is Robert Collins, my mother was Bertha Lee Smith, James Smith is my granduncle, and Noami Brown of course is also in my family tree. The only contemporary Mary Smith I find in my genealogy is Mary Lou Smith, could this be you? In any case it is nice to have family members remembering their ancestors.
