On 15 July 1918, the Express & Star reported on an event at the Molineux Grounds on the previous Saturday. Female employees of Sunbeam Motor Car Company had hosted a number of wounded soldiers from local hospitals. Various employees of Sunbeam, including singers, a pianist, a humorist and an illusionist, put on a show for the soldiers. Afterwards, tea was served in a large marquee, followed by sports, including an egg and spoon race for nurses, a forty yards flat race for the soldiers, and a three-legged race for soldiers “and lady partners”. In addition, “the soldiers then demonstrated their skill at hat trimming, and some really very good attempts were made”. On behalf of the wounded soldiers, Drum-major Herd thanked the ladies from Sunbeam “for a very enjoyable afternoon.”
