Address by Tom Boyle Director, Brigade Scotland
This was an excellent address by Director Tom Boyle praising the boys for their work and endeavour in attaining the Queen's Badge. He tasked them to use the skills and lessons they have learned in everyday life at work and play and he hoped  many of them would put something back into the BB by taking leadership courses and becoming officers.

Extract from Guestbook, 3 June 2008, Battalion Vice-President Duncan Mitchell
I chaired the Presentation and, as usual, was very impressed by the young men receiving their Queen's Badge certificates. Why is there no press coverage of this type of event?
Thanks for your efforts, keep up the good work.
Extract from Guestbook, 1 Aug 2008, S/Sgt Fraser Ellis 163rd Glasgow
Excellent site. The pages on the Boys' Brigade from this year are tremendous. And thanks for the insightful comment on the Profile on the Queen's Badge done by myself, Adam and Douglas.
