You should  get MacRae's Battalion by Jack Alexander ISBN978-184018-232-2
A picture of the Mossend 'Cow-punchers' is in the photos including Robert ( Bob) Boyd.

I Think the photo of M-Swifft,s. Was in the Central bar W-Calder.
It would be worth a look. If you are in the area.
And a couple of questions. You may well find what you seek ;)

Hello,

Anyone know where I can get a photograph of Robert Boyd who played for Mossend Swifts FC in the early 1890s?

Thanks

I have two photographs of Robert Boyd, one with the Mossend team (not very good quality, it's
a copy of a copy) and another with the Scottish national team that he played two games with.
I've tried uploading full team photos but the file size may be too big, will not let me upload. I found
the international team photo on ancestry.com, I have been searching quite a while for something
like that-I will continue to try and upload it, but if I cannot, feel free to contact me and I will email
photos to you. My mother had the Swifts team photo, Robert Boyd was her grandfather, so I suppose
it was passed on to her by family.  The Robert Boyd in Mcrea's Battalion book (The Cowpuncher!)
was the son of Robert Boyd of Swifts.
