Administrative history

The members of the Saarlouis Theatrical Committee were G.M. Sheppard, P.G. Diplock, E.J. Edward, H.W. Crook, K. Ashcroft, and W.T. Stevens. All of the men were with the British military; several of them held the ranking of lieutenant. From March to December 1918, the Committee staged fifteen productions, including variety shows, orchestral shows, and fancy dress balls, all but one of these in Saarlouis, France (now Germany).

Custodial history
