Rev Colin Plenderleith, Chaplain of the 4th Peterhead BB Company and Minister of Peterhead Methodist Church, has agreed to stay on as Battalion Chaplain for another year.

Rev Plenderleith was due to officiate at our 50th Anniversary Parade and Church Service in March 2020 before it was cancelled due to COVID-19. The Executive decided that our next parade and service would again be to the Peterhead Methodist Church and we were delighted when Rev Plenderleith intimated that he would still have us!

The Battalion usually has an annual rolling Chaplain, whereby the minister of the Church who hosts the Battalion parade is invited to be our Battalion Chaplain for the year. Our last two Chaplains have bucked this rule.

We look forward to meeting Rev Plenderleith when our parade and church service – celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Buchan Battalion – can finally go ahead!
