The Boys’ Brigade Archive Trust Virtual Museum.
The Boys’ Brigade was founded in 1883, partnering with local churches to work with children and young people, sharing the gospel and encouraging the development of a personal Christian faith. From its early days in Victorian Glasgow, The Boys’ Brigade has reached the lives of millions of young people and leaders worldwide, and spawned the organised youth work and uniformed youth culture which is an important part of society worldwide in the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Boys’ Brigade has a rich history and legacy, and much of this is preserved in the memories of current and ex-members. Whilst it is difficult to capture the spirit of The Boys’ Brigade through a virtual museum, we hope to have succeeded in creating an interactive experience which will help in re–living the experiences. This museum will continue to be developed, with new content being added through the efforts of the volunteers dedicated to preserving the heritage of The Boys’ Brigade. We are particularly keen to start including oral histories, and anyone with BB experience is welcome to get in touch with us to contribute.
The Boys’ Brigade Archive Trust accepts donations of materials from individuals, Companies and Battalions, including correspondence, books, photographs, uniform, badges, flags, colours, records, and minute books etc. If you would like to know more about the contributing to the collection, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and download the objects donor’s form.
The Boys’ Brigade Archive Trust is a registered charity and is reliant on the donations and support of ex-members. If you would like to contribute, please see the gift aid form and giving pages.
