I keep finding references, in obituaries, to soldiers having been members of the "SSS Brotherhood" - but I can't find anything more. Google also lets me down.

My assumption is that it's got a religious connection. Church Men's Club? Or something of the like.

Anyone come across this? Or is it just something Stockport specific?

It could be a theosophical fraternal or secret type of organisation- like the masons or similar?

Probably Socialiat Sunday School Brotherhood which came out of the London Great Dock Strike in 1892. There were 120 groups around the country by 1912 including the Manchester area.

Malcom - still inetrested if you ever find out what the priests might be. Will do a bit more digging and see if I can tie the men into being Roman Catholics.

Thanks

To mark the 40th year of their setting foot on Indian soil, and the 25th year of ministry in Tamil Nadu, the Blessed Sacrament Fathers held a three-day Eucharistic Congress (March 12-14, 2004) at Pallavaram in Chennai.

Prepared and hosted by the young Blessed Sacrament Religious of our three communities at Velappan Chavady, Kamarajapuram and Mannurpet, and generously supported by a host of enthusiastic volunteers and well-wishers, the Congress with its motto: Manna 2004 was a veritable milestone in the life and ministry of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers in India and an
