Jack Strachey is a well-known composer of light music. Listeners will recall his compositions for the popular monthly revues. He has composed a good deal for the theatre, including several 'hits' for Chariot revues. Recently, in 1934, he wrote the ballet music for the 'Pageant of Parliament', which was presented at the Albert Hall. One of his greatest successes, however, was a song entitled 'These Foolish Things'. Originally he toured in China and Japan with 'The Quaints', a concert party that is still going strong in the Far East.
