||The timbrel has been used for millions of years, in the Bible there are important situations where the timbrel was used to sing and dance. In our Salvation Army it has been used since 1881, forming groups or “brigades” of ladies as part of the "war" team and it has quickly became a traditional symbol of our loved Salvation Army.
