Extract from guestbook August 2002, Tom Petit, East Kilbride
Good to see the Boys Brigade getting a mention I was a member of the 106th at St Clements church on the London Rd. In it's time it formed a great part of my life from the life boys to the boys brigade great years. I remember going to Girvan on my first camp with a company from Springfield Rd.
A few names I remember D Ford, J Bell , R Bigger the captain was Mr McCulloch,.



Extract from e-mail July 2004, Jan Page.
".....I came across this old BB photograph, I think it may have been St Clement's Parish Church BB. Certainly Bridgeton Group. Sorry I don't have any other information other than it is a Bridgeton BB company."

August 2004, Extract from email, John Paton, Australia,  
".............. the church on the corner of London Rd & Brook Street the 106th BB this is where I went to Sunday school, shipmates, lifeboys and the BB. till it closed down in 1967
Then I went to St Francis in the east church where I joined the 228th BB being captained by Neil Dunn who as you said Webmaister was a top bloke I was there till 1970 and it was one of the best times in my life. 
When I left Dalmarnock school I went to Bernard Street school........... I phoned my old man on Sunday to get him to look out as many photos as he can find, of the B.B. and my old schools if they are any good I will scan them and email them to you........
