looking at the Orange Lodge post reminded me

Anyone remember on a Sunday morning a group of the SA would be in the middle of your street playing instruments, singing and a sermon
Don't know if it was just our street that needed saving
You don't hear very much about the SA nowadays
Remember a lad at BI who was going to be an officer in them when he left school
Were they paid a wage or was it voluntary

I remember them playing at the end of our road on occasions, Sunday mornings mainly. I would think some of them would be full time and would receive payment, like any other religious or charitable organisation.
