• Short Summary

    Baritone Sydney Burchall dressed as a soldier sings 'The Lady From Armentieres'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Pathetone presents - that popular Baritone - SYDNEY BURCHALL singing 'THE LADY OF ARMENTIERES'".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Sydney Burchall dressed in army uniform, sitting on a table in a domestic setting and singing 'The Lady of Armentieres'. Shots of World War I soldiers marching along dissolve into shots of World War II (?) soldiers marching along and boarding a ship. In the instrumental break Sydney lights a cigarette while shots of marching soldiers appear either side of him.

    Note: Denis Gifford book states correct spelling of this artist as Sidney Burchall.
