    I have nothing more at this stage, but will keep an eye out for them as I go through materials. Let me know if you get any further too.

    Hi Tony - I have just been reading my grandfathers WW1 diary from 1917-1918 - he was in the middle east and holy land and he makes reference to making Pierrot costumes for the "Nomads" I also have a photo of the Nomads in their costumes. The diary entries are all short one liners - so not much detail.

    Default Concert parties WW1

    I am always scouting to expand my research, so if you have any information relating to concert parties and entertainment in WW1, or think I may be able to help you, please drop a line.

    Hi Kate,

    I’ve just been reading about Lena Ashwell’s Concert Party’s during WW1 and wondered if you had come across any photos of these parties during the war. I’ve searched the internet and can find photos of Lena ( though not actually in concert parties )

    Researching this topic is new to me, though I have just read Lena’s book.

    Would appreciate suggestions as to where to look.
    Regards
    Matilda
