Examiner of Plays' Summary:
A neatly written and rather grimly amusing little play. Two girls, working at a munition factory, discover they have both been walking out with a Tom Smith, of the same regiment. They buy a paper and Tom has got the VC: his picture is given and it is the Tom Smith of both. They quarrel furiously, until a third girl runs out of the factory and announces that she is married to Tom, when they console one another. No "wrong" is suggested: Tom is only a flirt. Recommended for Licence. G. S. Street.
