Day: 31 May 2023


With a month to go until our first ever Queen’s Badge and President’s Badge celebration we are delighted to advise that Iain Hamilton, Aberdeen Battalion, has accepted our invitation to be Chief Guest.

As Training Convener for the North Scottish Area his face will be a familiar one to Queen’s Badge Recipients whilst those who attend the NSA residential courses will get to know him over the next two years.

A reminder that all recipients of the Queen’s and President’s Badges are invited to attend this celebration which should see representation from 1st Fraserburgh, 4th & 5th Fraserburgh, 1st New Pitsligo, 1st Rosehearty, 4th Peterhead and 1st Strichen.

All Officers from across the Battalion are invited to attend but numbers must be forwarded to the Battalion Secretary for catering provisions.

Later this year the Boys’ Brigade will celebrate the milestone of its 140th Anniversary.

At a recent meeting of the NSA Executive our very own Jim Muirhead MBE proposed a Baton relay to celebrate the occasion; to link every company in the North. Planning has now begun to check the feasibility of this.

Our image today shows the Buchan Battalion baton from 1983 which was carried across the Battalion for the Centenary. It contained a message from our Battalion President.

Did you take part in 1983?
