Inverness Battalion Boy's Brigade

A group photograph of children in the Inverness Battalion Boy's Brigade, pictured in Farraline Park before leaving for camp at Carrbridge.

The Boys Brigade was founded in 1883 by Sir William Alexander Smith and was the first uniformed youth organisation in the world. Following the success of the Boys' Brigade, other uniformed youth organisations were formed including the Boy Scouts (1908), the Girls' Brigade (1893) and the Girl Guides (1910).

Today, the Inverness Battalion Boys Brigade has been merged, as of 1999, with the Caithness and District Battalions to become the Highland Battalion.
