The President, Executive and all in the Buchan Battalion have been extremely saddened to learn of the death of Stuart Pratt.
Ex-Captain Pratt gave 45 years service to the 1st New Pitsligo Company, only retiring from the Company earlier this summer.
A long-time Captain of the Company, Stuart started volunteering with the then minister Rev. Ralph for 2 years from 1977 before becoming an officer in 1979.
Last year Stuart took the decision to step down from the captaincy of the Company after a considerable number of years as Skipper. On stepping down Stuart continued with the Junior Section.
Just a few weeks ago we reported that Aberdeenshire Council had recognised his 45 year voluntary service with the BB with a Pride of Buchan Award.
The President and Executive send their condolences to Stuart’s wider family as well as to his BB family at the 1st New Pitsligo.
