As you look at the photo, the boy sitting on the floor on the right side next to the square trophy was my father Raymond Barrow.

  • In the 60s I was a member of the 30th Boys Brigade, we were based in The Barn at Patcham. I remember going on several Church Parades around Brighton. Happy Days.

  • Hi Alan, my father, Ebenezer Charles Snelling 1904 – 1964 was in the 13th B’ton Boys Brigade, probably around the WW1 period.  I was in the BB at Hollingbury/Patcham and went to camp at Glynde.  ”Bumble” Griffin was captain and Les Harris (the coal merchant) a lieutenant.
