[Cecil Harwood, severely injured in World War I, spent a long period in West Vale Hospital, Halifax, and then went to Acton, London, to be assessed for surgery. Of the Music Hall stars mentioned, Harry Lauder is the only singer]


It had been a pleasant stay [in hospital] as we were allowed two free passes per week to Theatre or Music Hall. I had never been to one before going to Halifax and this trip to Acton was a bonus as I saw many of the old stars in their heyday of success, such as Will Hay, Harry Lauder, Wee Georgie Wood and a host of others, the unforgettables of the early 1900’s. Their songs and sketches pop up occasionally in “Old Tyme Music Hall”.
