During the war he was a member of several well-known concert parties, and sang in camps, rest camps, and hospitals in France, Belgium, Italy, and Malta.

One of the most popular light-Comedy and musical-comedy actresses of the English stage, Joyce Barbour first appeared before the footlights at the age of eight. This was in Birmingham, her home town, when she made her début, as so many famous actresses have done, as a pantomime fairy. Before she was fourteen, she was appearing at the music-halls, being billed as ' Little Joyce Barbour '. In the ' Gaiety ' production of Tonight's The Night she was the youngost of the chorus girls, and was called ' the baby of the Gaiety '.
Joyce never had any formal stage training, nor is there a theatrical tradition in her family. She just took to it like a duck to water, and has played in scores of revues, musical comedies, and straight plays, as well as broadcasting in many BBC productions.
Joyce Barbour is married to producer Richard Bird , in whose production of George and Margaret she played for two years. She and her husband are now living in a Surrey house which has been loaned to them by the American playwright Robert Sherwood-their own flat is an enemy-action casualty. Apart from broadcasting, Joyce Barbour is at present doing film work for the Ministry of Information.
