Seamen and children enjoying a match-box game on the deck of the escort trawler HMS SAPPHIRE at Harwich. The tea party given by the officers and men was attended by about forty children from a village near their base. Several pounds from the ship's canteen fund paid for the spread and the men went without their chocolate ration for weeks before so their young guests could have a plentiful supply.
