Jamaican Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) volunteers dressed in their ‘English’ coats leave The Colonial Centre in Russell Square, London 17th February 1943.  
The Ministry of Information described the Colonial Centre as ” a London residential club for men from all over the British Colonial Empire, is housed in an old Georgian mansion overlooking Russell Square. Here a man can get a bed for 2/- a night, a good three course meal, in a restaurant to which he can invite his friends, for 1/9. Opened by the Duchess of Gloucester on March 9th, 1943, the club has already become headquarters of much of the social life of the students, war workers and men in the forces who live, or spend their leaves in London.”
