On This Day 1915: Concert at the Camp

The members of the local Ladies’ Orchestra provided entertainment in the Camp at Shoreham. On this occasion a large assembly of guest soldiers gathered in No. 2 Hut for the most attractive evening’s entertainment. They thoroughly enjoyed the performance, especially the presence of Miss Grace Nockels who gave the most welcome of vocal assistance.
