It is Martha Reid on the far right, in 1936 she would have been age 12. My Mother (Jessie) says the annual Poppy appeal was quite an event involving the younger children as "sellers" and their older brother's and sisters as organisers.

These aren't poppy sellers, they're selling white heather for the Scottish Children's League of Pity.
