Kathleen Fraser knew how to get permission to go to a dance during World War 2.

And of course petrol was rationed; you only used your car for essential things. And you got coupons; we have them here which you can look at. That's a clothing, oh that's the petrol coupons, so you only used - I remember going - near the end of the war - going to a dance in Croy and you weren't allowed to use your car, but the local vet put on a meeting before the dance and he talked to the farmers about his educating them and that was all right; you could use your car and then we had the dance afterwards. [Laughter]

This interview was recorded as part of a War Detectives project in 2005 at Aldourie Primary School.
