What a fabulous photograph ... of the the
32nd Glasgow Drum & Fife band.
The first ever Boys' Brigade band formed in 1885 was the 1st Glasgow
Drum & Fife band
and here just seven years later is a photo of the 32nd Glasgow. As a
former Boys' Brigade bandmaster of a Drum & Flute band in the 1970s
this photograph is just fantastic!

This band formed the basis of the
Glasgow Battalion Band and featured in most of the Centenary in
events held in Glasgow in 1983. Along with the champion BB Bands in
Scotland the band of the ‘32’ featured in the first Boys' Brigade
LP Record entitled appropriately enough ‘Centenary Album’
produced by Lismor Recordings.
