The evils of Impurity

The Alliance of Honour was a men’s organisation founded in 1904, aimed at moral improvement. The founders were Lord Baden Powell and William Booth.

The Alliance of Honour held a very successful meeting in the Corn Exchange on March 13th, when the two founders of the movement made strong speeches about the duty of Purity among men and the evils of Impurity. There must have been quite 500 or more men present, and the proceedings were enlivened by the Silver Band, which made its appearance for the first time after the War, and included several men who had been serving in the Forces.
