I believe that Gilbert Mallison on this photograph was my wife's great-uncle. We already knew of him as a grocer (or grocery manager) in Garforth but not that he was in the Salvation Army, although many others of the family were devout Christians. The John Higgins also pictured could be the husband of Gilbert's sister Cissie. If anyone could point me to further information we would be delighted.
