BOYS' Brigade -- 2nd Port Glasgow Company At Remembrance Ceremonies

THE 2nd Port Glasgow Boys' Brigade Company and their championship band took part in several parades and events on Remembrance Sunday. 

The boys began their day by attending the service of remembrance in St Andrew's Church, Port Glasgow, before parading to the war memorial

The band then took part in a parade to the Toll Boys' Monument on Robert Street, Port Glasgow. This has been an annual tradition for the band and this year the parade celebrated its 16th anniversary. 

The small parade is an extra act of remembrance that the 2nd Port Glasgow are proud to be part of as the monument acknowledges the loss of 29 young men from the area where a Toll House was previously located. All the men volunteered to fight in the First World War; none of them returned from battle. 

The company marched with many local dignitaries and Army Cadets in dry but cold conditions. The turnout for the parade was the best for a number of years and all those involved came together for a meal afterwards. It was a moving but enjoyable and educational day for the company. 

The band hope to continue supporting the Toll Boys parade after the monument is relocated to a new marble plinth beside Glasgow Road, which is due to happen in early 2018.
