Peace On Earth 1918 - An Archive Advent Calendar #4

Today's archive is a description of the children's Christmas concert held on the island of Flotta, taken from the Orkney Herald dated 1st of January 1919. Our favourite bit is of course "entertained to tea and plenty of good things therewith." In Orkney, a tasty cake or bake is always known as 'a good thing.'
