When the War broke out both she and her mother took up war work, and Miss Gorlich has since sung at over 300 concerts for soldiers. Once, in January of the present year, she sang to 45,000 Canadians at Etaples. Gunner F R Gorlich came over with the second lot of Canadians and is now convalescent in Hastings. He met his sister at Etaples in April quite accidentally after a parting of about five years”.
