A number of people who had attended the commemoration at the Cenotaph in the morning, came on to our very successful performance that afternoon, it was very moving to see them in our audience that day. The visual image in the background is the frontispiece David Jones painted for his wonderful prose poem on the first world war 'In Parenthesis', these words formed much of our recital that day with other war poetry and song.
