This year, apart from giving out the awards, the BB History Book, “Underneath the Banner” was launched. Putting together events, activities and happenings of the past 80 years, “Underneath the Banner” is BB’s first attempt to document history through stories related by past and present BB members.
All in all, it was an enjoyable and fitting occasion for BB Members past and present to come together and celebrate the achievements of The Boys’ Brigade!
