|Refreshments and food were arranged by the Ministry's catering devision|
While the party goers enjoyed the celebrations, the occasional "Air Raid" could be heard over the music coming from the old wireless. A reminder that the war was still waging outside the comfort of the dance hall.
|Here we have the future of the Empire! God help us all!!|
|The Resistance showed support with two of its members surfacing from hiding to make the event.|
|The Entertainments arm of the Ministry provided live music from local jazz and swing band "Noir"|
|It is with great regret that the Ministry acknowledges a laps in security. This jumpy little fellow was found hitting on anything in a skirt, luckily the Highland devision were on active duties so this little Yank had to make do with just the ladies.|
|Bloody jumpy little Yanky, that's my wife!!!|
|There he is again! Typical Yank, all wind with no content, although he was spotted trying to pass on his content to many of the resistance girls!|
|"Air Raid!!! All the ladies should hide with me under this desk, boys you are on your own!"|
