Early leaders at Largo were Miss F Cox of Largo House, Miss Margaret Paxton of Homelands and Miss Anne Turbayne. Brownies started in 1923 with Miss Nanny Cameron as Brown Owl and Miss Isabel Paxton as Tawny Owl. Rangers followed in 1924. When the 'Largo Village Book' was written in 1932, there were 22 Guides, 24 Brownies and 15 Rangers. The above photograph from 1960 shows the organisation continuing to flourish. Pictured outside the Durham Hall in Lower Largo, this occasion was the presentation of the Silver Cross for gallantry to Winifred Hay, who had saved a man from drowning in Largo Bay (source: 'A Kingdom for The Trefoil - Girl Guides in Fife 1910-1977' by Doris Coyne).
