Video commissioned by the Army Flying Museum as part of project eagle funded by the National Lottery Heritage Funded project to bring the museums stories, collections and artefacts to new audiences including the museums young Eagles youth group in partnership with the army welfare community development service.
WW1 It was the role of the performers to motivate the troops and to keep morale at home high.
Performers came in all ages and sizes but during WW1 most were women, some created performances wearing soldiers clothes and performed on the main stages here in Portsmouth as men. This was considered a real art form and these female performers travelled the world with their male impersonations.
In the theatre world gender switching roles is not unusual at all, traditionally men have played womens roles since the Tudor period when women were not allowed to perform.
