The Company held its display and presentation of awards on Friday, May 8th in the Miners' Welfare in Coalburn.

The Chairman for the evening was the Rev. Harry Findlay and his wife Irene presented the awards. The Company was inspected by Peter McLeish of Coalburn.

The evening was opened by Rev. Findlay and was well supported by parents and friends of the Company. They were treated to a varied and interesting programme of activities from the Anchor Boys, Junior Section and Company section, which included a biblical display of the 12 Disciples, Figure Marching, PE, Games and a taste of camping.

Captain James Reid, in his report, expressed his delight in what had been achieved in all three sections this year, stating that it was a very successful and enjoyable session. He thanked all the parents and friends who so generously supported the various fundraising events and especially thanked all his officers and helpers for supporting him.
