At Easter in 1941, when Jean Anstruther was 13 years old, she attended a Pioneer Corps dinner. On the reverse of her souvenir menu - in later, adult hand, she reflected thus: 'Dance held near Dunmow - went with Philip, [Anstruther] Mary [Anstruther] and Val [Were]. We were guests of honour - quite good fun except that Val trod on my toes the whole time, not so good as I had to dance with him most of the evening! My toes the next morning weren't worth talking about!" (Click on the image for Jean Anstruther's biography.)
