The Salvation Army


1965 Centenary


To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of The Salvation Army in 1865, a massive International Congress was held in London.

As the Joystrings were at the height of their fame, it was only natural that they would take part in the events.

The following photos have been taken from a celebratory photo book of the event

A souvenir record was released, and a track entitled "It's True" by the group was included on Side 2.
