Master Sutherland

Photograph of Master Sutherland of Hawthorn Drive, Inverness, wearing his Life Boys uniform.

'The Life Boys' was formed from the 'Boys' Reserves' section of the Boys' Brigade in 1926. This was at the same time as the Boys' Life Brigade merged with the Boys' Brigade. Life Boys were aged between 9 and 12. Their uniform was a navy-style cap with 'The Life Boys' on the ribbon, a lifebelt badge worn on the left breast, and a smart blue jersey and shorts.

The Life Boys were disbanded in 1966 and incorporated into the Boys' Brigade as a junior section
