    That was a very good stint - I'm sure in years to come you will get many of your lads thanking you for your service to the Brigade. I'm sure many of us now regret not going on and serving past our time at school.

    Well done.

    Thanks, was proud of the things I did but left not because I can't help anymore, rather that I was not happy with the way the company section was being run and how that my role as officer had become that of a "glorified babysitter" and that I was not given a chance to really do anything despite my track record in the other 2 sections as well as what I had forced my way into doing at company section.

    That and the other guys were more concerned with getting people from outwith the company to come and help rather than working with what they've got. More concerned with getting more help (which isn't needed as we have enough officers) than keeping the boys interested and coming every week.

    My captain was shocked at my comments when I told him I don't want to return. They obviously thought the company was being run right but an interesting thing is how since New year i had turned up twice on a friday (excluding our display) and that no one asked or seemed to care where i was. Should point out that I had no classes or anything to run so thought would rather spend a friday night in that stand about bored all night doing nothing.

    Have advised my brother (who is due to do his queens award) not to stay on as officer because he will end up in the same position as me.

    They've wasted a good officer. Actually had a friend who is an officer in a nearby company ask me if i would be interested in helping them as well.

    My biggest regret will not be leaving the BB but leaving Junior Section 2 years ago because I was in line to become officer in charge of the section if allowed.

    Was there a B.B. football league in Glasgow? my abiding memory of the Belfast league was if you,d have a really good side eventually you had to choose between the B.B. and your school team as both played on Saturday morning,
    I like the vast majority opted for the school team as there was much more prestige being picked out of a year of over 200 boys.

    1st Camelon anchor boy then 2nd Falkirk company section.

    My son is starting Anchor Boys with one of the Larbert ones soon.

    Had thought both my old ones had folded but have found out they merged to form an enlarged 1st Camelon when the two churches merged.
