154th Glasgow BB, Bridgeton Page1

                           Amalgamation of 175th & 241st BB  (c1968)

 

Status :  Disbanded
Church :  Dalmarnock Congregational Church, Fairbairn Street, Bridgeton
Meetings : Dalmarnock Congregational Church, Bethany Hall & Barrowfield primary school

.

The 175th company amalgamated with the Bethany Hall BB company the 241st Glasgow to become the 154th.  (c1968)
We held our meetings in Dalmarnock Cong church and the Bethany Hall in Bernard Street before finally using in Barrowfield primary school.

The amalgamation had another advantage in that they also had a fantastic Girls Brigade Company!
Great for the church socials!

Robert Smart, William Sloan, Bert Tweedie then Willie McKnight went on to become captains of the company..

Hello Webmaister. Just read the 154 Company BB article. It was the Bethany Hall 241 Glasgow Company that merged. I was a member, attended the Bethany Hall and Barrowfield School and Bernie. I still have my prize book for attendance (Biggles Works it Out) Session 1962/63. The Label is still on it with my name and Company number.  Brigton forever! Aw ra best.
