Rhu-Boys-Brigade-w.jpg
Rhu Boys Brigade515 viewsMembers of the Rhu company of the Boys Brigade are pictured at camp. The company existed from 1915 to 1925 when it folded because leaders could not be found. It was inspected at least twice by Lord Inverclyde, the then Lord Lieutenant of Dunbartonshire. Image supplied by Alistair Quinlan, whose great uncle, Arthur Burnett Winton, is second from the left. Arthur's father ran Rhu Post Office, and he was a telegram boy. He spent most of his working life at Helensburgh Post Office and Helensburgh Telephone Exchange, and in his 20s played football for Rhu Amateurs.
