Jakarta 1989

    In May 1989, the Medan Band travelled to Jakarta. It was the band's first tour, and it proved to be an exciting adventure for all concerned. We couldn't afford the air fares, so band members travelled on a chartered bus. The trip from Medan to Jakarta took several days, including a brief journey by ship between the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Java. In Jakarta, the band played a various functions held to mark the 100 years of the Salvation Army in Indonesia. Here is the band standing at attention while Eva Burrows (The Salvation Army's international leader at the time) gave us our title: "The General's Band" after she met the band in Bandung for the first time.
