13th Brighton Boys Brigade

13th Boys Brigade
From the personal collection of Malcolm Halley

I remember my time in the Boys Brigade very well. My brother, Graham, was also in the 13th at the same time as me as well as a cousin, Andrew Jackman, and my uncle, Peter Jackman, who was one of the officers.  I remember when the band started and someone was brought in to help train the drummers. He lived in Richmond Road next to my Nan but I can’t remember his name.

Remember any names?

The only photo I can find was when we won the local district gymnastics competition. I’m second from the left on the front row but after all these years I can’t remember any names.  Anyone help out?

  • @Mick Benham – very long time no speak; good to see you are still around. I have fond memories of my time in the 13th when you were an officer there. Hope life is still treating you ok?
