BiographyHistory

Comprising servicemen from 1st Division Artillery (Australian Imperial Forces), the Serenaders is believed to have been organised in France in 1917, the year after the Division relocated from Egypt. A program held by the Australian War Memorial indicates that the company was managed by Captain C. W. Smith and produced and directed by W. W. Muir. The musical accompaniment was provided by R. A. Leggett and H. W. Relf.

Apart from Captain Smith the individual ranks of the performers is unclear, as they are all identified by the acronym Sdr.
