The friend who sent me the flute also sent me some books, and this is one of them. There is no copyright page so I can't determine the year, though I'm guessing its quite old, and Google doesn't show anything.
I think the Life Boys is a series of books for a piping band, not sure.

A search for Life Boys has found this: http://leaders.boys-brigade.org.uk/life ... ipcard.pdf

Looks like an organisation similar to the Boy Scouts to me. A further search for "Boy's Brigade" finds a Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boys%27_Brigade

The "Handbook for Leaders" is probably about how to teach the boys to play? What's the content? Just sheet music or also instructions?

Just sheet music, treble and bass staves.

A bad pun built into the name and logo... it must have seemed clever to somebody at some point.
