The Salvation Army Australian Southern Territory Territorial Headquarters
The collection Records of the Salvation Army Boys' Home, Mount Barker, held by The Salvation Army Australian Southern Territory Territorial Headquarters in Blackburn, Victoria, contains admission registers, admission cards and miscellaneous files and reports.
Care leavers can apply to the Salvation Army for information and records about their time in care.
A two page application form will need to be completed. The form will ask for contact details, personal and family information to assist with a record search and identification.
