Before the advent of radio, stereos and television, families provided much of their own amusement. Anyone who could play an instrument, or had a passable voice, was cherished as well as expected to entertain. These talents were even more prized in the trenches of Gallipoli and Europe.
And the Band Played on is a tribute to the abiding value and morale boosting power of music and song to Anzac forces, as revealed in our outstanding collection of vintage sheet music.
