Ted Freeling and Phil Inglis’s Bull’s Eyes were hailed by The People newspaper (London, Sunday, 21 July 1912) as, ‘A bright goey show, and the one bright spot of the pier.’ The party’s personnel comprised six artists: Olive Dent, ‘a clever Comedienne’; James Carson, ‘a Light comedian with the songs’; Dorothy M. Lloyd, ‘Pianist and Entertainer second to none’; Ted Freeling, ‘a real comedian’; Phil Inglis, ‘the Dancer who can Sing’; and Emmie King, ‘the lady with the voice.’
(The Stage, London, Thursday, 25 July 1912, p. 15b, advertisement)

Phil Inglis (Private P.G. Watson) was killed in action near Salonika on 24 April 1917.
