Dear All, Please convey my Sympathies to Lisle Munday [?] & Co on losing Mr Woodfield—saw Arsenic & Old Lace Sunday night at our “Little Theatre” quite a good show & boy oh boy the leading Lady was a smasher—he is quite a good actor—There is one thing here and that is that although we only manage to put on about 1 show a month it can be guaranteed that they are absolutely 1st class. When I say first class I mean that they are literally as good as some London shows & that is no exaggeration Pre-war Professional Artists — Carpenters — Actors — Producers etc. are the main core of the our Theatrical Company. It is surprising the amount of talent there is to be found in a camp like this—our American pals in the next compound had a sports day on the 4th June I think it was—and they have a chap there who found he could run—they claim in one of the races that he beat the world's record. Of course it will be unofficial but anyway, a new find for their next “Olympic Games”— Have been playing "Soft Ball" & like it very much.
All my Love
Lisle, John, Letter, 10 July
