Evelyn Southwell in Ypres - 3 February, 1916

from Two Men: A Memoir, page 135:

Afternoon. The gramophone in the barn with the Company; an idea of mine which pleased them a bit, I think. We sat listening to the Plantation Medleys and H. Lauder songs, etc., while the shells strafed the village, and the blue sky pierced through the roof. It was worth doing.
