  • Regulation dark blue short sleeve shirt and shorts
  • Field service cap with cap badge
  • Junior crest sewed on left breast pocket
  • White nylon belt with chrome buckles
  • Regulation shoulder flashes and company designation
  • Name tag
  • Dark blue socks

Fatigue Dress

This attire is for informal occasions or when fatigue duties are performed.

It consists of the blue BB regulation T-shirt and dark blue shorts with the white nylon BB belt with chrome buckles.

Boys will wear their canvas shoes and a jockey cap is optional.

Boys are reminded that for Brigade level activities, events or courses that stipulate fatigue dress, only the BB Regulation blue (not Company) Polo T-shirt is to be worn.


PT Kit

For informal or sporting sessions, the PT kit consists of the blue BB regulation T-shirt, name tag, dark blue shorts and field rank for NCOs. Boys will wear their running shoes with white socks. The name tag and field rank can be removed during games.



There are no Boys' ranks in the Juniors Programme, but specially selected Boys may be appointed as follows:

  • Chief Leading Boy - Red lanyard is worn
  • Leading Boy / Squad Leader - White lanyard is worn
  • Assistant Leading Boy / Assistant Squad Leader - Blue lanyard is worn.



Field Service Cap

The cap is worn on the right side of the head, one inch above the right ear and two finger breaths above the right eyebrow. The cap badge is worn on the left side of the cap at 5cm from the front. (refer to Handbook Picture p.22)


Name Tag

White plastic measuring 7.5cm by 2cm worn slightly above the left breast pocket. Only the name of Boy should be engraved on it and nothing else. (refer to Handbook Picture p.22)


Pocket Crest

An embroidered BB logo sewn onto the front left pocket. (refer to Handbook Picture p.23)



The lanyard is worn around the collar under it, secured by a knot to prevent slipping. The end of the remaining length is affixed to the left breast pocket button. (refer to Handbook Picture p.23)

The proper way of wearing the lanyard is as follows:

The lanyard is to be curved at the edge of the left pocket, instead of hanging down near to the waist. At Brigade-level activities and functions, only white lanyards are to be worn at all times.





This should be worn fairly tightly around the waist. The buckle should be in the centre. (refer to Handbook Picture p.23)

Regulation Shoulder Flashes

These are sewn to the uniform shirt immediately below the shoulder seam on each arm. (refer to Handbook Pictures p.24)


Badge Armlet

These will be worn on the right arm above the elbow with the colour badges pin onto it. (refer to Handbook Picture p.24)


Colour Badges

The badges should be worn in sequence as depicted in the diagram below:

*The three service badges should be arranged as such: 3rd Year (far left), 2nd Year (middle) and 1st (end).



If the Boy does not have all the badges, the badges should be worn centralised on the armlet. Below are a few possible combinations:







  1. All members of The Boys' Brigade in Singapore should take pride in wearing their uniforms smartly.
  2. All uniforms should be kept clean and special care taken for the metal and leather parts.
  3. No parts of the uniform should be added on to or removed in public.
  4. All Boys in uniform are to salute to all BB Officers when at Brigade functions or activities.All male Officers are to be addressed as "Sir" and female Officers as "Madam" or "Ma'am" on parade. Off parade, Officers should be addressed as "Mr ", "Miss ", etc.
  5. Proper decorum should be adhered to when in uniform, as it affects the image of The Boys' Brigade.

As an approved CCA operating within schools, the BB needs to be compliant to the school rules pertaining to haircut. Officers are to lead by example, with neat haircut, adhering to the MOE guidelines for teachers in schools.


  • For Boys/Male Officers, the haircut should be neat, and should not cover the ears and eyebrows. Hair should be just above the collar at the back. No artificial colouration of hair is allowed and no body ornaments such as earrings should be worn.
  • For female Primers/Officers, the haircut should be neat with no loud colouring. Long hair should be neatly tied up.

All Boys who report for any Brigade activity, event or course with improper uniforms or haircut would be suspended from participation.

We require the assistance of all BB Officers to uphold the standards of attire and behaviour of our BB Boys at all times.


Any doubts pertaining to uniform matters should be brought to the attention of  the Brigade Office.
