1st Leith Boys' Brigade Company

Do you know any former members of the 1st Leith Boys' Brigade Company? A new book on the history of the company is due to be launched in February and the author, Ian Ross, from the ex-Members Association is hoping as many former Boys will be able to make it along.

The book has been two years in preparation and has more than 100 old photographs. Get in touch with Ian Ross on 0131 669 6283 or at [email protected]

John D Tait from Vancouver in Canada replies: MY father was in the 1st Leith - his name was Alexander Tait M.B.E.
