Lords a'Leaping

I really liked the 10 Lords a'Leaping in the Christmas event at Uppark.

"Christmas Evening saw us in the works canteen where there was a piano. The Kommandant was there and he gave a bottle of beer to everyone who did a turn......"

'Till We Meet Again: Gunner Bert Martin: 1941 to 1945'

I remember that passage! Curious how those beers in your photo would taste.

I would not be a good judge even if offered half a pint as I cannot stand beer! Perhaps not so good for the servants.
