BOY SCOUTS' CONCERT
The second Annual Concert of the 4th Hong Kong (Murray) and the 4th Kowloon (Garrison) Troops was successfully held last night at the China Fleet Club when the premises was packed to overcrowding.
The programme of 14 items was well interspersed with songs, music and laughter and the artistes one and all contributed much to the enjoyment of those present.
The Scouts themselves were also responsible for several of the items presented and the type of entertainment provided last night left little to be desired.
The Band of the 2nd Battalion the East Lancashire Regiment opened the proceedings with several selected numbers while Mrs. Anderson Miller delighted the audience with the song "Waltz Song." Mr. P.H.Segon followed up with another song entitled "Getting around and about" after which the pupils of the O'Keefe Montgomery School of Dancing obliged with two dances.
Mr. McNeill was in a humourous vein with his Lancashire Monologues while the Quartette of the 2nd Battalion The East Lancashire Regiment rendered selections. The first half of the programme closed with a sketch entitled "The Company Producer" in which the scouts themselves took part. This act kept the audience in a merry mood.
The second half of the programme was much the same as the first half in which other artistes took part.
Messrs. Li Chor Chi and B.O.Kime were responsible for the duet "Watchman what of the night" and the scouts gave an exhibition of physical training under the direction of A.S.M. J.Mansfield.
The Hawaiian Instrumental Trio were called upon to repeat their fare while the Dance by Miss Stella West was vociferously received.
A humorous item by Mr. G.Harvey Ash brought peals of laughter and the concert concluded with the "Grand Scout Finale" depicting a Camp Fire Scene.
Judging from the applauses received the concert was in every way a great success and those who turned up last night were in no wise disappointed by the fare served.
