Entertaining the Wounded

From The Cleckheaton Advertiser and Spen Valley Times, 6th May 1915. 

THE CAMP ENTERTAINERS. -- The Camp Entertainers, a concert party formed recently by a number of young Wyke people, visited the Field House Military Hospital on Saturday afternoon, and provided a two hours’ entertainment of a most enjoyable character for the wounded soldiers who are now staying there.  The programme consisted of songs, recitations, and humorous items, and the efforts of each member of the party were very highly appreciated.  At the close of the concert, the Camp Entertainers took tea with the soldiers, and afterwards one of the wounded heroes expressed the very warmest thanks of the inmates of the hospital, not only for the delightful character of the afternoon’s pleasure, but also for the kind thought shown by the visitors, and for the gift of cigarettes they had taken.
