warcryThe Canadian War Cry was first published on November 1, 1884. Since that date The War Cry has gone through many changes in format, size and design culminating in the current magazine format and name change to the Salvationist. With the exception of just a few issues,  copies of all the War Crys published in Canada are in the archives.

The Archives is pleased to offer on line 105 years of the Canadian War Cry in PDF format beginning with the first eight editions of the War Cry which was first published on November 1, 1884. Issues for the complete years  1885 to 1979 (with the exception of several issues which are missing from the Archive’s collection)are now available. The years 1940 – 1943 covering the War years make for very interesting reading as these issues document The Salvation Army Red Shield services to the troops.

Also on line are the 2008,  2009 and 2010 issues of THE SALVATIONIST which are word searchable. Gradually the remaining  editions of  The War Cry and The Salvationist will be added, as time permits. Enjoy the read!

Most issues are word searchable. However, a number of issues have been scanned from our micro-films and although readable and downloadable are not at this time word searchable.

The archived War Crys /Salvationist can be searched by going to the ALL FIELDS SEARCH BOX and typing a word i.e. Brown in the  field box or going to the DATE PUBLISHED BOX  and typing in a date i.e.  1884. To access these search boxes you need to :
