Abney Park - Salvation Army Founders
They say the founders of the Salvation Army are buried at Abney, one of the so called magnificent seven cemeteries, so armed with a camera i went in search of symbolic meaning or a photograph of something symbolic for later translation. I've never studied the history of Sally's Army and to be Frank i have no intention of becoming a pupil but even i was quietly surprised when i spotted the small brand at the top of the stone. In particular the slogan which reads BLOOD & FIRE which also features the colour burgundy as lets be honest its closer to the red of blood. Why would a religious order incorporate two key features of so called satanic worship?
