Glasgow Battalion show ARENA 83, KELVIN HALL
The Boy's Brigade Centenary 1883 - 1983


The first ever BB band in 1886 was a BB Flute band. The Glasgow Battalion of the Boys Brigade
decided to celebrate our centenary with a grand show in Glasgow's famous Kelvin Hall.
BB officers, members and friends from all over the world converged in Glasgow and we were honoured as a company to be asked to take part in the show.

The sketch was the first BB band suitably dressed marching into the arena with the flutes and drums playing 'Onward Christian soldiers' followed by an old Glasgow tram and marching boys carrying wooden rifles, as they did in those days.


BB uniform... in 1885 a cap and belt was introduced and by1886 the 'pill-box' with two rings of white braid and the company number on the front was worn. The officers 'Glengarry' was introduced in 1885
