The low-neck.


A serious warning against attempting a fashion-shift back to the good-ol’ days of the high-neck uniform…

“I should like to talk about the care of your health and physical powers. There is no time for that; but remember that I want you to take care of your throats. Do not sacrifice your throats for too prim a military appearance. Remember the alternative of the low collar. When I see you singing solos, with high collars hooked tightly, i cannot tell you how badly I feel. The only really bad throat I have had during forty years of Officership was about six months after the high collar came in, when the doctor said I had a clergy man’s sore throat. I went back to the low collar, and have not known throat trouble since.”

– p. 38 Florence Booth The Powers of Salvation Army Officers (1914)

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
