As the 100 Salvationists, including flag bearers, banner carriers, band members and timbrelists, marched along, the crowd of 400,000 lining the streets cheered and sang as the band played "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory." Many called out greetings and others shouted their thanks for the Army's work throughout the year.
