Mrs Devereux looks on as her daughter Jean (third from left) and her friends open their Christmas presents, towards the end of the Christmas tea party they are having at their home in Pinner. Many of the girls are wearing paper party hats. The Christmas tree in the background is a present from Mrs Devereux's husband, currently serving in the army overseas. The tree was purchased through the 'Gifts to Home League' of the YMCA. Mrs Devereux is holding a teddy bear.
