Description

This sub-series contains programs and other souvenirs related to entertainment by soldiers during journeys aboard troopships. These were held at venues in places stopped at along the route to the final destination. These were mostly performances by troopship concert parties. Performances were held during the First World War as well as afterwards when troops were returning home to Australia.
