'A little bit of sugar on the top' was written and composed by R.P. Weston. This copy was published in 1907 by Francis, Day & Hunter, London, and sung by Harry Bedford. The lyrics recount a number of anecdotes linked by the addition of ‘a little bit of sugar’.
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.
