Variety Acts And Turns Of The Second World War

Variety Acts And Turns Of The Second World War

Over 2 + 1/2 hours of the performances and songs sung by the populist, morale boosting variety acts and singers of the Second World War. Artists who
helped the frontline troops and home front civilians alike to 'Keep Smiling Through' the
dark days of war.

Featuring balancing acts, strongmen, comedians, musicians and singers including Flanagan & Allen, Gracie Fields, Robb Wilton, Sydney Burchall, Tommy Trinder, Peter Sinclair, Vera Lynn, Max Wall, Joe Loss, Cyril Fletcher, Tommy Handley and Mantovani among many, many more!

This release also celebrates the wartime work of ENSA - the 'Entertainments National
Service Association' - set up in 1939 to provide entertainment for British armed service
personnel throughout the war. ENSA endearingly became known by the troops as 'Every
Night Something Awful!'

First released: Monday 3rd October 2011
