The 2nd Belfast Company BB is now based in Conway Street on the Shankill Road and belongs to the Church of God. I believe the orginal company was Drew Memorial?

Hathaway my husband and his friends are now aged in the 70s so unless it was earlier than the 1940s the 2nd BB were based at Broadway Presbyterian Church on the Falls Road

Yes Dawson you are right. The Church was called Broadway Presbyterian. It is now an Irish Teaching school.

Broadway was our family church right until its untimely demise during the troubles and my Dad and all his brothers were all  members of the BB there. All sadly deceased now but even the youngest would be oh, mmm, approx mid 80's should he have lived. They were raised in nearby Thames St and I'm trying very hard to track down family history now. Nice to see the old pics, very happy memories from childhood spent around there and Broadway where I myself was born. If I get pics I will post.

Hello Nick. My hubby is interested to know your family name. Is Keene your Dad's brothers' family surname? We are still in contact with a few members of the BB and Broadway Church and will mention to them at the weekend.

I have just come across these old photos from the 2nd BB and the 2nd old boys football team some faces i know and some i can`t remember , Flash King , Willie Walwyn , Billy McMillian , Jim Baxter , Norman Todd , a few whose faces are very familure but can`t put a name to them i think i was in the next generation coming along that joined the 2nd Life boys and then the BB great days , sorry i can`t disclose my name i went to Broadway School and then Fane Street our Life Boy displays were great the whole area came to see them i remember collecting old news papers to bring to the church for some sort of charity and they ran beetle drives to raise money one week i won a chicken and i ran home all the way with out stopping to give it to my mum i was over the moon i never won anything ever , our days outing in the summer was a day trip to a field facing the Falls Park it was sort of a way down to a meadow were donkey rides were laid on sports there was terrific .

New to the forum as i am trying to do some family history. I will send the photos to my mother who was brought up in Braemar Street and attended Broadway. She is now 90 so the memory might not be great
I recognise my uncle, Roy Martin, who is in the overcoat in the last Football picture. He died about 10 years ago in a nursing home in St Albans, Herts.
Yes i can confirm  the 2nd were attached to Broadway
