This morning three young men from the 4th Fraserburgh were presented with their Queen’s Badges – the highest award in the Boys’ Brigade. The badges were presented by the boys’ mothers; a thank you for all they do for their sons in the BB.

The badges were presented at a special Platinum Jubilee church service, led by Dorothy Mair, at Fraserburgh’s West Parish Church. It was fitting that the Queen’s Badge was presented at a service celebrating the BB Patron’s 70 years of service.

Final Night at the Lighthouse!

For the final time the BB kept the light at Kinnaird Head to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This time the 4th & 5th Fraserburgh companies had the duty of keeping the machine running.

They had fantastic conditions last night and enjoyed a magnificent sunset from the roof of the Castle.

The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses would like to thank all members of the BB for participating in this event, helping to make the Jubilee celebrations in Fraserburgh that extra bit special!
