Appeal to RSA for orphanage
Major Winton and Staff Captain Marshall, of the Salvation Army, waited on the monthly meeting of the Dunedin Returned Soldiers’ Association with a view to placing before the members a scheme to raise funds to build a Salvation Army orphanage at Andersons Bay and enlisting the sympathy and help of the Returned Soldiers’ Association. He pointed out that the Salvation Army had devoted itself to the needs of soldiers during the war, and in consequence their funds for ordinary work had been impoverished. He now asked that the returned men should prove their appreciation of what had been done, and help the army. The estimated cost of the orphanage was about £10,000, and of that amount they had £2000 in hand.
