Would 46th BB be the one held in Christ Church , my older brother Mervyn Johnston ( from Hutchinson Street ) went to it you might know him if that's the case?

Val, the hall opposite your grannies gable wall was the hall used by the 46th Life Boys and Boys Brigade. The hall belonged to the Drew Memorial. As LR says the 44th was attached to Christ Church. The 4th was attached to the Presbetyrian church facing QVPS and the church hall used by College Square Youth Club. The Presbetyrian church in Albert Street at the corner of Raglan Street and close to the Divis Street/Falls Road junction was the home of the 3rd BB and LBs.

                I never said in my quote to Val that the 44th was attached to Christ Church , I got married in Christ Church so I knew full well the 44th was in Christ Church .

1972

This isn't the Grosvenor Road. This image was taken at Butler Street on the Crumlin Road. The burnt out Corporation bus is on "The Pad" as it was known.

              BB and Lifeboy`s displays were very popular back then the crowds that went were huge they were so thrilled to see their wee weeny boppers mature from the Lifeboy`s to young men when they joined the BB , and then the Old boy`s  to auld men , I once won Lifeboy of the year at the 2nd Lifeboys in Broadway Presbyterian Church on the Fall`s Road it was a huge book like an encyclopedia of Pinocchio in a beautiful red scrolled designed backing no idea were it got to might have been worth money to - day .
