(('Esther' mentioned by Mr Jones in today's diary, was performed as a ballet. It was out of this world to us watching it, just superb dancing, music - and costumes some of which I believe were made of old bits of dyed mosquito netting. Some Japanese officers who attended the performance were critical about the use of mosquito nets for this purpose, and of certain medicines to dye them. What a great morale-booster these Stanley concerts were!))
