The Boys' Brigade, founded by Sir William Alexander Smith in Glasgow, has been helping to shape and mould young men for more than 130 years.
It was an instant success, quickly spreading throughout the United Kingdom and around the globe - today, there are hundreds of thousands of members still enjoying the teachings of Smith and the values he sought to instil. In this lavishly illustrated history, Michael A. W. Strachan tracks the history of an iconic organisation that has been a pillar of communities around the world for over a century.
Exploring a variety of topics, from how the uniform has developed to the way in which the Boys' Brigade has adapted to the modern world, this is an essential read for members past and present.
