Scarborough - Salvation Army (1882)

Sunday was a real harvest day, the brass band and a host of “Blood and Fire" soldiers marching all day and at night, when our forces who had divided, met in Queen Street and made one long procession with flags flying, handkerchiefs waving and shouts of “Amen’s“ and “Hallelujahs!“ rending the air. With eight of the Queen's soldiers marching abreast in front of the procession, it was something glorious. Inside the Barracks were crowded and outside lieutenant White led an overflow meeting, with about 60 soldiers. 22 sought Salvation, 11 of whom were the soldiers in the Queen's Army.

From, 'The War Cry', May 1882.

This is just one example of what was happening here. More reports can be seen from the War Cry in future months/years.
