Great War Theatre

Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A sincere simple little sketch of a wife's suppression of a letter ‘O.H.M.S’ ordering her husband, a reservist, to re-join at once. Her loving strategy fails through her child's baby-talk about the inscription on the fateful envelope; and while the little one strums 'Rule Britannia' the mother gives up her husband to his duty.
