Malcolm White in Sheerness - 26 December, 1915

from Two Men: A Memoir, page 135:

Steuart Wilson and I went to hear Sapellnikoff yesterday in that same Hippodrome, and a woman sang the worst songs in Europe. 'Once in an old-world English country town, I met a maid Gowned in brown; It quite enhanced her loveliness' The notes were rather worse than the words, but it ended with a change of key and on a top A, so we all applauded loudly and shivered, and I took in my Sam Browne belt one.
