Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918

On Thursday and Friday evenings two excellent concerts, arranged by Private Percy Cash, were give at Heatherdene, one of the Grand Duchess George of Russia's hospitals, by the wounded soldiers, assisted by one or two friends. The Grand Duchess and party were present at the second concert, and at her request the autograph of each of the artistes were appended to a programme specially arranged by Private F H Barstow. The concerts were a great success, and a feature of the programme was the performance of a highly entertaining and finely written farce by "Little Boy Blue" (Private F H Barstow, Royal Fusiliers), who when the call for author was made received quite and ovation.
