Location : Ipoh Airport

Remark : Come hell or high water most British servicemen have some form of celebration over Christmas and even the Communist threat in Perak did not put a stop to the festivities.

Above left, entitled "Preparation for Xmas Santa Drop" by the photographer shows a dummy Santa Claus sitting on the shoulders of the central figure. No doubt he was to be parachuted down, but to who is not known. Do you know?

On the right above are the off-duty members of the Ipoh flight dressed appropriately for their 1957 Christmas party.
