Lily Elsie – The Sketch – 1916

Lily Elsie - The Sketch - 1st March 1916

As beautiful off the stage as she was on: Mrs. Ian Bullough (Miss Lily Elsie)

Miss Lily Elsie, who recently reappeared on the stage, for charity, in “Mavourneen,” at Her Majesty’s, until she, unfortunately, caught a severe chill and was forced to relinquish her part, is in private life, as everyone knows, Mrs. Ian Bullough. She was married in 1911. Her husband, who is the son of the late Mr. John Bullough, of Meggernie Castle, Perthshire, and Accrington, Lancashire, was formally a Major in the Scottish Horse Yeomanry, and since 1914 has been a Lieutenant in the Coldstream Guards. Mrs. Ian Bullough is as popular and charming in Society as she was on the stage, and that is saying much.
