What a great website webmaister it is the first time I looked at it closely.
I was a member of the 189 195 and 204 Boys Brigade companies
My two best memories are getting presented with a Book for bible knowledge by Alex Ferguson. and going to camp in Aberdeen playing another Glasgow team at football and breaking my leg.
Sorry to read there is only 1 company left in Rutherglen, Regards, George Barrie
