Companies in the old Fraserburgh District of the Buchan Battalion are invited to attend the Fraserburgh Remembrance Sunday Parade and Church Service.

This will take place on Sunday, 12th November. Boys and Girls should meet at the Fraserburgh Royal British Legion (Hanover Street) for 10am, the parade leaving at 10.15am for the Old Parish Church.

The service is expected to take about an hour (10.55am-12pm), after which the parade will march to the war memorial for a wreath laying ceremony. After this the parade will then return to the Legion building for approximately 12.45pm.

The Companies of the old Fraserburgh District include 1st, 4th, 5th Fraserburgh, 1st Sandhaven and 1st Rosehearty. Companies are parading under Battalion colours.

We look forward to seeing you on the 12th November.

Companies who normally attend commemorations at their own villages are encouraged to do so again this year, if commemorations are proceeding.


Well done to the 3 teams from Buchan who took part in todays #BB140 Monopoly Challenge in Aberdeen.

1st Rosehearty Senior team took first place and 4th & 5th Fraserburgh took 3rd!

The important thing is that all participants enjoyed their day celebrating 140 years of the Boys’ Brigade with fellow members from around Scotland. Well done to all and thanks to the organisers!

Our President led a delegation of 8 members and 5 officers at the Braemar Gathering and Highland Games Centre yesterday, supporting Aberdeen & District Battalion – The Boys’ Brigade annual stewarding duties.

One of our members, Tayler (1st Rosehearty) had the distinction of being presented with the 140 Baton by His Majesty the King with two others, Ruary and Kaelyn, in the presentation party. A day to remember for sure and we look forward to meeting the baton again.

As can be seen in the photos, as well as meeting the King and the Queen some of our members bumped into a few famous faces!

It was a proud night for the Company on Tuesday as we saw three of our members presented with the President’s Badge by Sandy Manson, Lord-Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire.

Finlay, Tayler and Kaelyn received the second-highest award in the Boys’ Brigade. Finlay was the first boy to receive the badge in our Company in at least 12 years, whilst Tayler and Kaelyn have the distinction of becoming the first girls in the Buchan Battalion to receive the award. Between them they gave nearly 200 hours of service to the Company this year.

The Captain explained that all three are now Queen’s Badge candidates but that it was expected that in September they would officially become King’s Badge Candidates. Well done all – we are extremely proud of you!
