“On Feb 7th,  the ‘Dominoes’ Concert Party gave a great concert in the hall. It was a great success. The place was packed to overflowing, and many were turned away. There were a lot of officers, British nurses and French civilians and the audience was most appreciative – everything went off without a hitch, and all the gags went down well. Driver Croly was splendid at the piano, and the stage hands did well too.”

Driver Croly is credited at the bottom of the programme for composing some of the music for the concert.

Dominoes Concert Party 7 February 1918

Here’s a link to view a contemporary period concert party. Please do not be distracted by the attractive ladies in the centre of the group as they are probably not quite what they seem. https://www.britishpathe.com/video/soldiers-concert-party
