72 Years of the 72nd

On 28th March 1946 the 72nd Birmingham Boys' Brigade Company was founded, 72 years on we held a celebration on Sat 17th March. We had a excellent turn out from across the years, with some of the oldest attendees being the first boys of the company. The celebration included a display of photo's, videos and memorabilia covering annual camps, band, activities, 1983 Centenary and much more. 

The quick change photobooth proved popular, using past and present uniform provided by Rob Bolton, at which the opportunity was taken to get a photo of the captains who were able to attend.
It was great to see the event attended by so many former leaders and member and was testament to the impact BB has on so many boys lives.
