Celebrating our 140th Anniversary


Stephen Boyle

Captain, 6th Newtownards Company

Monday 19th September 2022

I was proud to have gained my Queen’s Badge in Centenary Year, and also to have completed my KGVI Cadet Training at Carronvale in the same year (as the sole cadet from Northern Ireland). Our course was thrilled when told that not only would we be attending the Royal Review of 4,000 BB members in Edinburgh on 2nd July but that we would be parading as a separate unit in front of our Patron, HM The Queen. What a privilege and honour as we began our Christian service to Him as leaders in BB.

Almost 40 years later, I reflect on that day and the long life of dedicated and steadfast service of HM Queen Elizabeth. She was an inspiration and a role model to everyone involved in The Boys’ Brigade and to our nation.

On behalf of 6th Newtownards Company, I offer our sincere condolences and prayers to the Royal Family, and in particular to King Charles III, at this time.
