B.B. Parade

A Boy's Brigade church parade. The date is a guess.

I think this maybe a Battalion Parade as I think it is Ewart Omand (sorry if I have spelt your name wrong) holding Battalion Colour and Bob Clouston holding the Queen's Colour outside the former East Church. Normal Colour Parties at Battalion Parades are provided by the Company Section based nearest the Parade so in this case it would normally have been the Kirkwall Company. The Officers listed were Officers in the Stromness Company.

This is probably 1983. See comments on picture #11797

Mind on the Kirkwall Boys' Brigade Centenary in March 2009.
