The Dutch and British combine to celebrate Christmas as best as they can, with a concert, dinner and presents for the children. Blanche, still angry at Rose and Marion for reporting her, is initially apathetic but joins in, claiming to have seen evidence of male prisoners nearby. Festivities are brought forward a day as the women are told they will be moved to another camp though Yamauchi, now allowing Christina to take paper, does not know if he will be going with them. The male prisoners are briefly glimpsed but Sally is distraught that she cannot see her husband. Written by don @ minifie-1
