Boys’ Brigade Reflections & Latest News

20 Sep 2022

Like many organisations around the country, The Boys' Brigade has felt the impact of the death of the Queen Elizabeth ll, their Patron.The Kinross Company was one of the many BB Companies represented at the BB Royal Review at Windsor Castle on Saturday 30 April 1994. Four Kinross Company Queen's Men Sergeants Robert C., David C., Jonathan G. and Roy M. left with officers after their Friday night meeting to drive overnight to Windsor to participate in this special event..

Over 1000 boys paraded that day with the Queen inspecting the assembled ranks in the quadrangle of Windsor Castle following a march along the "Long Walk." The Queen spent time inspecting the boys, chatting to many with Roy M. being fortunate to be one of the random selections by Her Majesty. When asked what he thought about their chat he commented that the Queen "reminded me of a wee granny."
