A Curate's Promise
Set in the East End of London during the First World War, A Curate’s Promise tells the story of Benjamin Digby.
As a minister, he is exempt from the conscription that was introduced in 1916, but his brother – a military officer on the Western Front – sends him a blank cheque to show his gratitude to The Salvation Army for their work supporting soldiers. Digby contacts General Bramwell Booth and requests to be shown the Army’s social work on the home front.
