Eric, I believe that Walter Catlett's HMV recording was released in 1917, offhand I don't recall the title, either. I used to own one of Brian Rust's discography books and its details are included there. Rather brave of Catlett to risk an Atlantic crossing during wartime for a theatrical engagement!
