  3. Interesting, (I followed them all the way from the Bethesda in Victoria Road, unless they just formed up there, thanks anyway)

  4. I believe the photo may have been taken from the so-called ‘Battalion Parade’ last year and is most certainly of the 8th South Shields Company (Baptist Tabernacle) – the 15th South Shields Company (Bethesda Free Church) does not take part as this parade involves non-Boys Brigade groups e.g. ‘Youth Bands’.
    Our Company does not agree with this and will therefore act accordingly until Battalion parades are once again exactly that, for Boys’ Brigade members only.
    Kind Regards,

    The Boys’ Brigade, 15th South Shields Company
