Relaxation must have been important for men whose lives had become several hours of stretched nerves and terror in the air interspersed with long periods of boredom on the ground. One of the ways in which commanders tried to keep morale high was by arranging for concert parties or shows to take place.
The illustrations are from a programme of one of the concerts that took place at Wickenby. Crummy, whose name is at the foot of the front page, was the station commander when Dave was based at Wickenby so we identified it as one of their concerts. I think I found the programme being used as a bookmark by Dave's twin brother, Les. Does anyone recognise the actors?
