History

THE MAN WHO STARTED BB BRUNEI

Charles A Keasburry Founder BBB

Mr Charlie Archibald Keasberry

The 1st Brunei Company was started on the 19th JULY 1964 by Mr Charles A Keasberry at St Andrew’s Church. He subsequently became the 1st Captain of the 1st Brunei Company. The 2nd Brunei Company was established in 1979 at St Margaret’s Church in Seria. The Captain was Mr Daniel L Keasberry.

 

Present

Due to government restriction, BB Brunei has persevered with the existence of two (2) BB companies ever since. A Bugle Fife Band was formed in 1967 and remained as the only youth organization in Brunei to have a band of its own. BB Brunei’s achievement has been encouraging despite the challenges posed by the local situation. Evidence of active personal involvement and commitment on weekly parade among the members and officers are the most visible encouraging scene in BB Brunei. Camps and trainings were held annually without fail.

Attempts have also been made to develop and prepare the BB Officers (adults volunteer) to be better leaders and mentors.

About Us

On 7 May 2002 , at the East Asia Regional Fellowship meeting held in Bangkok , Thailand , the idea of BB Asia was first mooted and a Pro-tem Committee formed under the chairmanship of Mr Michael Moorthy, the Brigade President of BB Malaysia. The paper entitled 'Extending The Boys' Brigade', proposing the new international confederation came from Mr Lim K Tham of BB Singapore.

BB Asia was officially inaugurated on 26 July 2003 in Johor Baru when BB representatives from Hong Kong , Indonesia , Malaysia , Singapore and Thailand signed a memorandum of agreement giving birth to the regional association.
