Souvenir from a concert held during the First World War. This program is for a performance by the 37th Division concert party, the 'Barn Owls', whilst they were stationed in France during 1917. The names of performers appear on ribbons zig-zagging down posts on either side of the centre illustration of a stage. There is no program included, only the message 'If we have made you forget your troubles tonight, please keep this as a souvenir of the Barn Owls.'
