Full image caption

'Light your Honour'. 'Men love Darkness rather than Light because their Deeds are Evil'. The reference is to John 3:19 "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." A boy offers to light the way for a couple but is threatened with a stick by the evil-looking man who presumably wants no light for his purposes.
