BCSS Manchester Branch – A History

Compiled by Christopher Leather

In 2017 the Manchester Branch celebrated it’s 70th year of existence. This booklet has been produced to celebrate that milestone and also to set down in print as much information that we know about the branch history.

This booklet wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of many people, and particular thanks must be given to Peter Bint and Brian Darnell who have supplied much of the information in this booklet.
