Read Narrative
Whilst the play had been performed since January 1915, this was the first time the play was performed with a license from the Lord Chamberlain. The performance was in aid of the Soldiers' Comforts Fund. 'Britannia's Revue needs no introduction to a Sheffield audience but those who did not see yesterday's performance missed one of the best numbers comprising the series, namely, the entry of America, our latest ally, into Britannia's court.' Performers included: The Misses Calladine (presenters), Mis Lillas Hawson, Miss Winifred Unwin, other well-known elocutionists, Miss Ethel Prescott's Ladies' Choir.' (Sheffield Daily Telegraph)
