Service at 10:30 followed by Holy Communion.
At 11.30 officers and 'NCO',s' and men met in the squadron billet over
tow or three barrels of beer. This continued until 13:00, when the men
all went downstairs and Christmas dinner was served by officers and Sgt's

by now was in the Xmas spirit and things went with a swingspeeches made
by all officers and W.O.s' After a quiet afternoon, officers proceeded
to Officers mess for cocktails and dinner. This developed Later into a
very lively party, including the presentation of leg pulling presents
from the Xmas tree.
