Honorary President

Mr James Muirhead MBE remains Honorary President of the Buchan Battalion, a post he has held since 2015. As suggested by the title he also remains an Hon. Life Member, an accolade he received in 2017 to mark his MBE appointment.

Mr Muirhead was an Officer of the 1st Fraserburgh for over 50 years before his retirement in 2009. He was latterly a Battalion reserve officer helping the 1st St. Combs company.

He served on the Buchan Battalion Training team for many years as a BTO before taking on the convener role. He also served as a past Vice-President of the Battalion 2013-15, being re-called from the ranks of the Hon. Office-bearers to serve.

Before the pandemic Mr Muirhead remained very active in the Battalion matters with his regular visits to all companies. He attended our AGM on what was his very first BB Zoom meeting (thanks to Patty and family’s assistance we’re sure)!
