Description

'Walks' was written and composed by E.A. Searson. This copy was published by Reynolds & Co., London, in 1917. The publisher describes 'Walks' as a humorous song. The lyrics describe observing many different styles of walking.
This copy of the music originally belonged to Private Ernest Alfred Nicholls and features his name at the top of the front cover. It is part of a collection of sheet music that was donated to the Memorial in 1971, and is symbolic of the concerts, theatre and other musical performances that Australian soldiers took in whilst on leave in London during the First World War.
