Description
" 1st Kikuyu Company, Boy Brigade - Last and not least in our training School is the place taken by the formation of the Boys Brigade Company. The lessons of self-control and self discipline taught in the school and work, and further in football and gymnastics are still further emphasised in the Company drill, and whole esprit de corps of the B.B. The combined training of school, work and play, coupled with moral teaching of our lives and lips, has transformed, under God, undisciplined quick-tempered, sulky Kikuyu boy and young manhood into obedient self controlled lives." Group portrait of indigenous boys lined up, all wearing Brigade uniform. ❧ "This Lecture was prepared by Dr J.W. Arthur in October 1911 on his voyage to Mombasa. The set of slides is the gift to the Kikuyu Mission of the Young Peoples Meeting at the Burgh Hall, Hillhead, of which he was for many years a member." A green folder marked 'Kikuyu' and containing lecture notes and relevant photographs to accompany lantern slides.
