'The Concert in the Desert', 1942 (c).

Watercolour over pencil by Eric Dawson, World War Two, North Africa, 1942 (c).

Entertainment was organised to break up the monotony of desert life: Christmas concerts and theatricals provided entertainment, and also kept soldiers occupied as they learned new roles.

Eric Dawson served in North Africa, Syria, Palestine and the Lebanon with 2nd Battalion Rifle Brigade, Royal Engineers and the Army Educational Corps.
