    Where was 32nd from bud?
    I was in 17th based at Anderson Parish Church, the big green steeple on Argyle Street close to Elderslie Street/Shaftesbury something.
    Church, I'm sure, started of as St.Marks which was next door, replaced by the green steeple one.

    Just saw your post ( over a year old)
    I couldn't agree more.
    In the lifeboys and junior and senior section from the sixties to 75. Great memories and great times. Was at the reunion at the Strathaven hotel and alas Old Tug's funeral several months ago. A truly great man....

    There is really no excuse.
    I went to 1st Port Glasgow BB but it isn't running anymore. My oldest son will be old enough to join later in the year and will join 2nd Port Glasgow BB.
    I just hope he doesn't decide to join the brass band.

    Had the pleasure to be at the Glasgow Battalion Jnr Section Sports night at the Emirates. Was a great night and the boys all seemed to have a great time. Tug of war a riot. Seemed to be a couple of hundred lads there

    2 wee boys in Intermediate won 9 out if the 18 medals available in their age group between them which was great fun as they competed hard against each other

    Companies I heard mentioned 95 223 107 205 but there were at least a dozen more.

    The boys and officers were great and I have to say I was really proud to be a former member of the BB tonight

    I was in the 227 which was more Yorkhill than Kelvingrove. I was also part of the football team that won the Steadfast 5-a-side tournament which started locally and ended with all the best BB teams in Britain. We beat another Glasgow team from Finneston(I can't remember the number) in the final. I knew most of their players because we all went to Woodside school, Great days.

    Nice one, I still have my grandpa's and my dad's silver ones.

    My boys would have been in the BB (217th Gilbertfield) and my daughter was in the Girl's Brigade. Just handed her Blue Jumper (their equivalent of Company Section) into the local Sally Army shop for sale yesterday but we gave the red (Junior) one to her wee pal. Like her dad, my lass won a couple of Brigader of the year trophies during her time. Also completed her Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award. My only regret is not being able to complete my Queen's badge after moving to an Area where the local church did the Scouts (ouch ).

    I think with my local Church being so packed and the number of cars I see there at night the organisations (BB and GB)must be thriving.

    Proud to say that my lad is about to complete his first full year in the Anchor boys. Sadly though, there is now no junior or senior section for him to join later due to lack of interest.
    Sad times.

    Everybody should send their boy to the BB. Shouldn't be a poster on this board in Scotland who's son is between 5-18 that and isn't in the BB.

    Really sorry to hear about the 5th Kirkie shutting up shop as this as this was mine.
    We used to do summer camp in Jersey at St Martins in the field, always mid Jul.
    Ian Brown used to have us doing our own walk, so many happy memories.
