Lee Prescott of Stonehouse and Stroud Video Unit writes of this 30 minute video of the ciné film: The Boys’ Brigade was founded in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1883 by Sir William Alexander Smith. It is a Christian based Youth Organisation run by Volunteers. Still going strong in the 21st. Century and worldwide. A Stronghold for Boys from 5 to 18 years of age. Effectively in four sections. Anchor Boys, Juniors, Company and Senior Sections, (1977). An integral part of the provision is The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme which features in the film. This Expedition facet is hard work in wild or semi wild country. Whilst aspects of the Boys’ Brigade’s work are serious, it is essential that the Boys enjoy it and be allowed rein to introduce some fun into it. – This is what a life time’s memories are all about! The Girls Brigade is also featured.

Many of those featured in this film live locally  – and the Duke of Edinburgh Silver Recipients featured received their certificates from Sir Peter Scott at Maidenhill School.
