Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Gabrielle Ray – Coleby’s Balsam – The Sporting Times – Saturday 21st October 1911

More than once we have mentioned Coleby’s Balsam is giving more relief from coughs and other affections of the throat and chest than any other preparation.

Miss Gertie Millar, Miss Gabrielle Ray, Miss Connie Ediss, Miss Marie Lloyd, Miss Evie Greene,

and other famous singers bear equal testimony to its virtues, and we have much pleasure in recommending it.

Gabrielle Ray – The Sporting Times – Saturday 4th April 1914

ROUND THE TOWN

 By SON OF THE MORNING

 

I looked in at the All Fools’ Day Revel at Covent Garden on Wednesday night, but, truth to tell, though it was very full, the proceedings were not particularly hilarious. In fact, the majority the participants wore a worried look, suggestive of unpaid rent, and obtrusive tax collectors. Well known people were scarce, but I caught a glimpse of Marie Lohr dancing energetically; Gabrielle Ray, otherwise Mrs. Eric Loder, in very natty sailor boy’s costume; Lily Elsie, who hardly left her box; while the men, Sir “Romeo” Stuart was here, there, and everywhere, and a young Guardsman of my acquaintance was very resplendent in the uniform his grandfather wore at Waterloo.

Eric Loder – Sporting Times – Saturday 15th August 1914

 

CORRESPONDENCE.

 MOBILISATION AT DIEPPE.

 To the Editor of the “Sporting Times.”

 

Dear Sir, – The order of mobilisation was received here yesterday (Saturday) about five o’clock, and among others to start at once to join their regiments were Pierre Mallet and Bernard, the well-known French boxer. The Casino was taken by the military authorities at midnight to be transformed into temporary barracks, but under any circumstances could not have been kept open long, most of the employees, having to take up military duty, had to leave during the night. There were three tables of baccarat going until twelve o’clock, when Mr. Eric Loder, who was the biggest winner of the evening, invited the whole of the Casino staff to the American Bar for supper. A very pleasant night was spent by all, although many had to leave during the Sunday for service, French patriotic songs being sung by Monsieurs Suto and Fabrey, who sang the “Marseillaise” with much spirit, to be followed by Harry Miller, who sang “God Save the King” and many English, Irish, Scotch, and American songs, Mr. Eric Loder being escorted home to the Royal at 5.30 a.m. by all the Frenchmen, singing “For he’s a jolly good fellow,” and three cheers for England. Among others present were Mr. Austen Richardson, Capt. Lings, Consul Samborne. Mr. Trub, Bloch, Taylor, Wade, and Capt. MacBride.

Although many English are going through to get home as quick as possible, there is very little change among the English here. All is perfect understanding between the English and French.

Trusting you are well and will mention our evening in your paper, yours faithfully,

 

Charlie Forrester.

The Casino, Dieppe.

 

Lunching at the Carlton the other day I found the restaurant quite full, and distinguished people were to be seen on every side. In a far corner Mr. Lloyd George was snatching brief respite from his arduous duties, and at another table was seated Sir Seymour Fortescue, one of His Majesty’s equerries. Mr. Ralph Nevill was rejoicing that the ancient facade of Boodle’s was to be undisturbed, and Mr. Eric Loder had made a successful escape from Dieppe.
