A Place to Forget the War

The Officers’ club, Enlisted Men’s club, and Red Cross club were an essential part of life on base. In a world, full of olive drab and army procedures, they added some colour and informality. These places were decorated in styles that could make the men forget the war for a short period. The Officers’ club, as the name suggests, excluded the non-commissioned personnel. They were catered for by the Enlisted Men’s club. The Red Cross club, however, was a place for both commissioned and enlisted men to mingle. The services these establishments provided on base gave the men some respite from the rigours of the task in hand. They were invaluable.
