An R.A.F. band puts on a show at the “Rafadrome Theatre” in Crépon, Normandy. Officers and men of No. 4 Beach Squadron R.A.F. converted the empty barn into an entertainment venue, building a stage on tree trunks and making the curtains from balloon fabric. The seating for 500 was made from wooden planks resting on empty ‘compo’ ration boxes. Picture by Pilot Officer Saidman, RAF official photographer, 27th July 1944 © IWM (CL 589)
