Souvenir cinema program for a motion picture set during the period of the First World War. This program is for the British talking picture titled 'Splinters', that was shown at a venue in Sydney following its release in 1929. The film is based on the story of the first British Army concert party, 'Splinters', organised by Private Hal Jones in France and directed by Jack Raymond and Herbert Wilco. The musical accompaniment was composed by Carroll Gibbons. The program features the history of the original concert party and the story behind the people involved in the production of the film.
