Queen's Badges for 72 Boys' Brigade Members

Wednesday June 20 2018

Boys’ Brigade members from across central Scotland were presented with the Brigade’s highest award at a ceremony in Carnoustie Panbride Church on Sunday.

72 young people from Angus, Dundee, Falkirk and District, Fife, Perth and District and Stirling received their Queen’s Badge certificate from Georgiana Osborne, Lord Lieutenant for the County of Angus.

Major Ronnie Proctor, Provost of Angus Council, also attended and read one of the lessons.

The Queen’s Badge represents the culmination of two years’ commitment, including community service, developing new interests, sporting development and an optional three-day expedition. The young people also attended two residential courses at the BB national headquarters in Larbert.

Each young person carries out a minimum of 60 hours of volunteering, with half spent helping within the BB or church and the other half in the local community. In total, 6500 hours of volunteering have been undertaken by the Queen’s Badge recipients.

Prior to the church service, The Queen’s Badge recipients marched through the town and were accompanied by 15 members of the 1st Monifieth and 44th Dundee (Broughty Ferry) BB pipe band.

“Congratulations it was great to see B B so active and to meet some members as officials at the Baemer games during my tour of Scotland in 2018. I purchased some B B memorabilia to present to my old B B Company Captain (B B Australian President late 1960's/ early 1970's who sadly passed away before I could gift it. My Queens Badge still takes pride of place along side my badge shevron 50 years on.
Very well done from an Aussie from down under.
