Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Michael Tem­lett

It has been an­other ac­tion-packed year for the 1st Law Boys Bri­gade as they paid trib­ute to their pre­vi­ous cap­tain.

Matt Smith was 65 when he passed away in De­cem­ber last year but the boys and of­fi­cers picked them­selves up to record a great 2017 in Matt’s mem­ory.

As well as be­ing crowned Wishaw and Dis­trict Bat­tal­ion cham­pi­ons for the first time in their his­tory, they have had a string of suc­cesses.

Jack An­der­son, Scott Chalmers, John Dunn and Thomas Wragg were pre­sented with their Queen’s Badges for out­stand­ing achieve­ment.

Three mem­bers of 1st Law Boys’ Bri­gade have also re­ceived their

Jack Brown, Ross Chalmers and Evan Kane, also re­ceived the sec­ond high­est award the or­gan­i­sa­tion had to of­fer for a va­ri­ety of skills based ac­tiv­i­ties.

1st Law also awarded two Duke of Ed­in­burgh Sil­ver awards to Bryan Reid and Garry Reid and seven Duke of Ed­in­burgh Bronze Awards to Cameron An­der­son, Fraser Di­mond, An­drew Greer, Daniel Stod­dart, Cameron Tay­lor, Ethan Webb and Rob­bie Wilson.

An­chor boys of­fi­cer Christine Greer was also pre­sented an award for an in­cred­i­ble 30 years of ser­vice.

1st Law BB cap­tain, An­drew Smith, said: “I am in­cred­i­bly proud of our young men who are lead­ing mem­bers of 1st Law Boys’ Bri­gade and have shown com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion.

“They de­serve a huge amount of credit for the work they put in - it is not easy for 16 and 17-yearold boys to find time while study­ing for their Highers or hav­ing a job.

“Christine has been a first class of­fi­cer and we are in­cred­i­bly lucky to have her in the com­pany.

“I am proud of ev­ery­one’s suc­cesses – and they should be too.”
