Leaflet about a concert party formed during the First World War. This leaflet details the background and history of 1 Australian Headquarters Pierrot Troupe, the ANZAC Coves. A list of performers, talents and place of origin in Australia is given in the centre. The leaflet suggests that this is for a performance at the Royal Court Theatre and mentions that this performance will be 'practically the same as at the front.' The leaflet also mentions how popular these performances are at the front and that proceeds from this season will go to the Australian Repatriation Fund for Discharged Soldiers.
