Boy's Brigade

The Boy's Brigade was a largely Protestant creation, which had both militaristic and Christian ideas. Events such as marching and military style drill took place along with singing Psalms and Hymns. It had a strong presence in Scotland, especially in rural areas. As Scottish Highlanders traditionally had strong links to both the church and the military and also a strong sense of community, the Boy's Brigade was naturally strong in the Highlands.

In this photograph, the Rev. Lachie MacLeod (in dog collar) is seen with three officers. From the left these are John Fraser, Donald Fraser and Frank Gibson.
