Beeston Boys' Brigade Parade, 1939

Boys Brigade Parade 1939

Nottingham Battalion of the Boys' Brigade, including members of 17th Nottingham (the Beeston Company), parading in Nottingham in March 1939

In front, carrying the mace, is Norman Frank Fearn - known as Frank. He was then about sixteen and had originally joined the Beeston Company in 1934.
The mace appears to have been borrowed for the occasion from Beeston Toreadors Band, of which Frank was then the Drum Major.

Suggestions for other names or other information would be very welcome

Thanks to the family of Frank Fearn for providing the photograph
