On this site of the Chinese Methodist Church, Madras Lane, Penang in 1946 the first company of The Boy's Brigade in Malaysia was formed by Robert G. Davies and Geh Hun Kheng. This was soon followed by the formation of more companies in other Christian churches and Christian organizations. In 1957, when the nation achieved its independence, there were eight Boy's Brigade companies and The Boy's Brigade was one of the contingents that were given the honour to take part in the declaration of independence parade. By 2006, The Boy's Brigade in Malaysia has over 100 companies with over 6500 members. Its aims are the advancement of Christ's Kingdom among Members and promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Chinese Character.(This plaque was laid by Tan Teik Hock AMN, BBM Honorary President & Michael Moorthy, BBM President on 7th January 2006)
