It was a pleasure meeting Geoff Camm (Treasurer), Brian Kilty (Chairman) and Ronnie Paterson (Secretary) at the village hotel in Walsall yesterday.
I would like to thank you all for taking the time to meet with me yesterday. I really appreciate the fact that you shared your knowledge and insight that accompany a special association.
I was very impressed by the commitment and work IBB & IJLB association is doing reuniting ex-members and I am truly honoured to be involved with the development of the website.
All the best for 2019 everyone!!
A warm welcome to the official website of the Infantry Boys Battalion & Infantry Junior Leaders Battalion Association. If you served in any of the following units then this Association is for you :
Infantry Boys Battalion – Tuxford/Harrogate/Plymouth.
Infantry Junior Leaders Battalion – Plymouth/Oswestry/Shorncliffe.
Junior Infantry Wing – Oswestry.
Junior Infantry Battalion – Shorncliffe.
The video below is, as far as we are aware, the only film of a Passing Out Parade from the Oswestry era which exists and was shot by the late Tam Melvin of the Black Watch who was not only a Junior Leader in the early 1960s but returned as a PS Instructor in the early 1970s. The POP is the Summer of 1973, you may well recognise some of the faces.
We trust that you will find our new website easy to use and to navigate around and look forward to hearing from you.
