|Short History||The Brunswick Scottish Society was
established by Messrs, Jock Dyall, Neil Gilmour and Jock Cameron in 1910.
The history of the period from then until late 1940 is unfortunately not available.
In the late 1940 period the Society became much stronger due to the efforts of Wally Rose and others who door knocked, after hours, extending a welcome to the Scots in the neighbourhood. Also welcomed were Scottish migrants landing at Station Pier, Port Melbourne. In 1946 the Society held their first Debutante Ball in the Brunswick Town Hall with the proceeds going to the Brunswick Mayoral Charity Fund.
The Society is a strong supporter of the Victorian Scottish Union,
having hosted five conferences and supplied eleven presidents and seven chiefs.
