Company history for the year 1890 - Formation of the 3rd Enfield

Monday 26th May
The 1st Enfield holds its second annual inspection on a field adjoining Christ Church. The Rev H S Toms acted as Inspecting Officer, and A J Ridge read the report. It was hoped that other Companies in Enfield would soon be formed.


Friday 31st October
The 2nd Enfield holds its first parade evening in the presence of A J Ridge. He spoke to the boys about the aims, Object and the rules of the Brigade. During the address he made special reference to the folly of smoking, betting and the use of bad language. Of the 29 boys present, 27 accepted the terms of membership. Any tobacco found on the boys was collected in a heap and burnt.


Wednesday 3rd December
The 3rd Enfield holds its first parade night. The Company was formed by the second son of the Christ Church minister, Mr Norris Storer Toms. The Company Captain is Charles Coote. The Company has 33 boys.
