Ten random things: July 5

Ten Generals of the Salvation Army:

  1. Clarence Wiseman (1974 – 1977)
  2. Bramwell Booth (1912 – 1929)
  3. Jarl Wahlström (1981 – 1986)
  4. Evangeline Booth (1934 – 1939)
  5. Bramwell Tillsley (1993 – 1994)
  6. Albert Orsborn (1946 – 1954)
  7. John Gowans (1999 – 2002)
  8. Frederick Coutts (1963 – 1969)
  9. Shaw Clifton (2006 – Present)
  10. Wilfred Kitching (1954 - 1963)

The Salvation Army was founded on this date in 1865.

ETA: marinwood pointed out, not unreasonably, that Bramwell Booth appeared twice in the original version of this list. I explained that there have so many Generals of the Salvation Army named Bramwell that it was easy to overlook the duplication. Nevertheless, I regret the error.
