Nice to see Walter Smith at the dinner supporting the Boys Brigade, he and his brother were members of the 136th BB Company from Carmyle, just across the River Clyde from Cambuslang.

 He was on the programme as the manager of Scotland but two days ago he was appointed the manager of Rangers FC. and of course he wanted his photo taken with us!

Concert in aid of the Stedfast Association Glasgow was held in Cathcart Church on Thu.18th Nov.2010.  We were delighted to support this organisation and all proceeds from the concert went to their funds.
On a personal note it was wonderful to see so many well kent faces from my days in the Boys' Brigade.
