Company Section Summer 2017
The Company would like to thank everyone who attended our Annual Inspection and Display on May 12th.
We were delighted to see so many people attending and sharing in the occasion, with our five most senior boys, Lachlan Callen, John Law, Keshav Mahendra, Ruaraidh Meldrum and David Molloy receiving their Queen’s Badges, the highest award in the Brigade.
The boys will receive their certificates at the Queen’s Badge Presentation Ceremony, at Glasgow Cathedral on June 1st, along with around 80 others from Glasgow Battalion.
All five boys also received their discharge certificates at the display, having reached the Brigade age limit.
With the night also featuring our annual prizegiving, there were further reasons to celebrate for Lachlan Callen who won the main individual prize for the year, the Award for Efficiency, and the Squad Challenge Prize, having commanded this year's winning squad, Squad No. 2.
Our Inspecting Officer was Niall Rolland, Development and PR Officer for The Boys’ Brigade in Scotland, and thanks go to him and to our Chaplain and Chairman for the evening, George Mackay, for their contributions.
Attention now turns to our Summer Camp, which takes place at Barcaple Outdoor Centre near Castle Douglas in Dumfries and Galloway from August 7th to 11th. We have 13 boys attending, so we expect a busy week.
Finally, Company Section will enrol for session 2017-2018 in the large hall on Friday, September 1st at 8.00pm.
