Two former Salvation Army officers have been charged with child sex abuse at boys' homes in New South Wales, allegedly committed in the 1960s and 1970s.

The allegations, concerning homes at Goulburn and Bexley, were raised at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse.

A 74-year-old man was arrested at a property at Waterloo in inner Sydney yesterday morning.

He was charged with 23 counts of indecent assault on a male, two counts of buggery, and procuring an indecent act with a male.

Police will allege the man assaulted children at boys' homes in Bexley and Goulburn between 1971 and 1974.

He is due to face Central Local Court today.
