The Glasgow Battalion
                 Queen's Men ....
May 2008



A social history of the BB in Glasgow
 photos and memories preserved on GlescaPals for future generations.


I was delighted to receive an invitation, along with my PiggeryBrae colleague Alastair MacFarlane, to this event from the Captain of the 229th Glasgow BB



I captured this lovely photo of Glasgow City Chambers at around 18.30  prior to the ceremonial.


The boys marching, with pipe band at front, to the City Chambers.


The Boys outside the City Chambers, large posters on the old HPO building a bit distracting!


Colour Party

"Thank you for the pictures you have uploaded onto you site regarding the Queen's Men Parade.  
You may or may not know that the Colour Party consisted of two Companies... the 208th and 79th Glasgow. I was carrying the Queen's Colour whilst my Staffy was carrying the Battalion Colour.  
My S/Sgt James McAlpine and one of the Escorts (Andrew Higton) received their certificates that night... 
Many Thanks," Colin Harkins, Captain 208th Glasgow

Capt.Harkins I am a very good friend of S/Sgt James McAlpine's grandparents, Davie & Sheila Davidson and indeed I met them at George Square that evening...... it's a small world. Regards, Webmaister.
