NEW VICE-PRESIDENT – CAPT. STEVIE WILSON

At our recent AGM Stevie Wilson, Captain of the 1st Strichen Company, was elected to become the new Vice-President of the Buchan Battalion.

Stevie is one of the most senior Captains in the Battalion having led his Company for over 20 years. His time in the BB goes back much further though as he grew up in the BB in Peterhead. Last session he marked his 30th year as an officer in the Brigade showing his long-term dedication to the organisation.

At Battalion level he has served in a number of positions. For many years he has served as Duke of Edinburgh Advisor to the Buchan Battalion, a permanent co-opted position on the Battalion Executive specifically for him. In this role Stevie and his team, particularly Kevin Mutch, has opened up opportunities of Duke of Edinburgh work for BB members across Buchan. His own company is known for its embrace of expedition and outdoor work and through his initiative and co-ordination this is now on offer to many more companies. He has also been Parade Commander of the Battalion since 2016 and very proudly led his first parade through his home village that year.

The President and Executive congratulate Stevie on his elevation to the post of Vice-President and wish him well in his continued service to the Battalion.
