Veterans (2)

Positive representations of the war experience flourished in the 1920s and 1930s, often alongside more negative representations. This HMV catalogue for 1930 contained an advertisement for 'The Darker Side of War' - a record of a gory radio play about the destruction of a German communication post called 'Brigade Exchange' (starring a very young John Gielgud, btw) - and 'The Lighter Side of War' - 'Cockney humour in the trenches', which was illustrated on the front cover.
