Young Bramwell is a vital part of the band but is just as dedicated to his football. He has been picked to play for the district in an important match which just so happens to coincide with a big Salvation Army event when young Bramwell will be given a commission.
Lt Mary Barker takes a young runaway under her wing, he is unwilling to reveal any details about himself but it soon becomes clear that he is unable to read and write.
“It’s not fair, the two things I’ve wanted to happen for ages. Why did they have to happen on the same day.”
