Girl's Brigade 1959
This photograph, supplied by Pat McCann, show's the Girl's Brigade of 1959 that use to meet once a week in the Baptist Church. Can anyone help me to put names to faces?

Middle Row second from left is me
Second in from the left is me Jan McInnies. Kneeling down on the left is Christine French. Third from left front row Mrs Horton, Captain. The others Pat McCann mention are correct except the spelling of Mullens. You can pick the juniors and seniors by their ties. The photo would have been taken in the Baptist Church that used to be next to the primary school. You had to attend church to belong to the Girls Life Brigade (later became the Girls Brigade I believe). I remember as a group marching at the Royal Albert Hall.
I am still in touch with Pamela
Mullens and Colin Townsend. Colin used to live opposite the primary
school next to the Doctors (Mr Crosskeys). Colin, Barbara Mullens, Christine
French and me used to hang out as kids and teenagers - spent a lot of
our 'playtime' over the aerodrome in the old air-raid shelters. The
best place to play in of course was that old mansion, not too far from
the Nightingale Cafe (picture on your site). Did you know the police
used the old house to train their police dogs - we barricaded ourselves
in the attic one time when the dogs came, very scary because the dogs
could smell us!!
