What do you like about this subject?

It provides a fascinating insight not only into the development of the Salvation Army around the world, but also into the social history of many countries

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

My main objective as far as possible, is to direct Salvation Army memorabilia and artifacts into the hands of dedicated collectors so that they may be preserved for the benefit of all.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Did you know for example that the Salvation Army were the first to introduce Labour Exchanges in the UK, and that apart from the government, the Salvation Army is the biggest provider of social services in the UK.
