This set of photographs is added as The Captain's Cabin, a public house in Norris Street just off Haymarket is referred to by Joan Guise in one of the letters from her late husband's friends who went to India with Tony. 
{198874 Lieut. R.Souray R.A.37/13 Indian H.A.A.Rgt 1.A.South East Asia Command.}
 This was the last time they all met up before they left for India in 1944. 

At the time these photographs were taken in August 2013 it was reported by the bar staff that the building was to be knocked down in September..... Serendipity,  that one should have chosen that particular trip to London, in august  to follow up the historical lead. 

The pub has been renovated since 1944 but the photographs show some of the feel of the place based on its location and interior. The last four photos were taken at about ten o'clock in the evening.
