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.

Please ask if anyone may recognise this young man taken with his new bride around 1940 - 1943 on their wedding day and the picture of the other gentleman, his brother taken possibly 1950's, both residents along with their family lived in Thames Street, Belfast, thank you.

Amongst the names mentioned in these photos were Flash King and Alex Todd, as I was related to both and pics are before my day lol, can someone please point them out on the pics here, thank you all.
           Flash King was the goal keeper and Willie Walwyn from Breamar Street is standing next to Alex Todd the rest are so young to identify .

Hi, with regard to the fotos of the football team members in the 4th picture it would be best to get Jim Baxter to do the honours with the names--I can say which ones I know & they are as follows:-
Bill McKeown, Roy Thompson ( just recently deceased), Billie King (dec.), Willie Walwyn, Norman Todd, Stanley Baxter, the bottom row is :-Jackie Williamson from Benburb St.,  Fred Curry, Donald Ross, the rest I'm not sure about but if that helps anyone then good.
Cheers

Just another wee bit of Broadway Church history.  I played in the 46th Old Boys Silver Band back in the 1950's.  On the 12th July
for a few years we took Broadway Church Lodge to the Field at Finaghy.  The band formed up in Richview Street, marched up to
the Church on the 12th morning where we had tea and something to eat.  Then band and Lodge marched down to Sandy Row to
join up with the district before marching off to Carlisle Circus.  The return was the same route in reverse.  On one of the Sundays
before the 12th there was a sandy row district parade to the Church which was the only time Orangemen walked on the falls road.
How times have changed.  Another district parade also went to the Drew Memorial church on the Grosvenor Road.

Regards Cookstown

I believe the Parade to the Drew Memorial was held on the Sunday before the 12th.

you could well be right and I certainly wouldn't argue with that.  The lodge was called Broadway Total Abstinence. I don't remember their Lodge Number.
