Read Narrative
Performed for the week by Thos. C. Dagnall's company including: J. Lawrence Anderson (actor), Evelyn Ormonde (actress). "This well-known and successful war story...would seem to be one of the few war plays which can survive the withdrawal of their background and excuse. We are still in that uneasy, transitory stage when drama touching on the old sorrows and triumphs is almost invariably painful or very dull. But this play leaves a different impression. The war element in it is neutralised by the many other elements which are entirely familiar and jolly." (Luton News and Bedfordshire Chronicle, 9 October 1919)
