100 Years!

We don’t yet know the exact date that the 1st CB started, early documents mention a camp in August 1913 and our official registration was February 1915. The assumption is that we would have been up and running before the outbreak of the First World War and so we have chosen a May 2014 weekend as our official birthday.

The Badge

Every member of the Group should have our special 100 year badge,which is worn on

the uniform top, above the World Badge, Participation Badges, etc.
