The T.W.E.R.P.S.: Spring edition

The T.W.E.R.P.S. were a local amateur concert party. who were in much demand during World War 2 to entertain the troops and other service personnel.

I am unsure at present what their initials stood for, so if anyone has any information about them which they can share, that would be most appreciated.

This feature appeared in the local newspaper in March 1941.

The well-known Bromley concert party, the T.W.E.R.P.S. whose services in entertaining troops and other members of the Services are so much in demand, have, owing to war demands, suffered a good many changes of personnel since last year, and above is a picture of the party as now constituted. They gave two shows to the public – rather rare events – last week.

Men: left to right: Brough Barter, Johnny Crouch, Jack Marriott (founder), Peter Cummings, Ronald Bull.

Ladies, standing: Pauline Stephenson, Dorothy Marriott, Marjorie Bryant, Gertrude Westwood, Peggy Ellis.

Chorus: Barbara Bishop, Marjorie Roffe, Mavis Parsons, Joan Payne, Barbara Williams, Joyce Courtenay Mary Smith.
