Notes

Not to be confused with the 'Band of Mercy' which became part of the radical 'Animal Liberation Front', founded in the 1970s. Some sources say that the Band of Mercy Movement became the youth organisation of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. I could not double check this information. (SD)
