Each year The Boys' Brigade celebrates its founding by Sir William Alexander Smith on the 4th October 1883.
This year the Worcestershire Battalion held its Founder's Day Parade & Service on Sunday 4th October in Halesowen.
This is the first time the Battalion has held the Parade outside the modern-day County of Worcestershire for a number of years. Halesowen, like Lye, is nowadays part of the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley in the West Midlands Metropolitan County; at the time of the Battalion's creation, the County of Worcestershire covered a larger area, including the area covered by the modern-day Dudley Borough.
The Parade took a route to Halesowen Parish Church for the Service, which included a guest speaker from Youth for Christ.
Thank you to the Boys who took part in the Parade, as well parents and family who came to support us.
