Lauder, Fyffe and Gordon

Black and white photograph of Harry Lauder, in his kilt, shaking hands with King Peter of Jugoslavia in 1943. Will Fyffe (1885-1947) is leaning over Lauder's shoulder to look at the king, and Harry Gordon (d 1955) is holding Lauder's right arm.

Will Fyffe (from Dundee) and Harry Gordon (from Aberdeen) forged a comedy partnership at the Alhambra during the Second World War and were very popular comedians in their own rights. Gordon was especially popular with Glasgow audiences as a pantomime dame, but also in the comic guise of the "Laird of Inversnecky".
