Some Party

220 Sqn Anniversary party at Umaid Bhavan, Jodhpur, Jan 1980.  Bindra talking to Air Marshal Johnny Bhasin (RIP).

Look closer and you see Jango and Eddie in the background and one of the palace retainers serving drinks – thereby hangs a tale

A condition for holding the Party at Umaid Bhavan was that though we could get our own liquor, the old palace retainers had to be utilised as waiters. The reason soon became apparent. Within an hour  they were all in an adjacent courtyard  in an alchoholic daze.  Obviously this photograph was within the first hour.
