WW1 concerts

#1
While reading through some old wartime family letters I've learned that my great grandmother used to sing at concerts during WW1 that took place at (I believe) army bases. (For example one letter makes reference to the Pirbright concert on 3 May 1915).Is there any way I can find out more about these concerts and the women who performed at them? I've tried googling but haven't managed to come up with much information.

Also, some letters make reference to the S.F.S but I haven't been able to work out what it stands for.

Thank you.

Hi, without making any promises, a colleague of mine in our local British Legion Branch has done extensive research on the effects of WWI in the village (as it was then) as well as the names on the War Memorial which is now being published as a book. When I next see him I shall ask the question.

My colleague hadn't come across any information, but I'm going to the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester in a few weeks, so I'll ask the staff there. Have you tried the one in London or even the British Army Museum?
