Rushden Echo & Argus, 10th November 1944, transcribed by Kay Collins

Yelden - Dance—A successful dance was held in the Institute in aid of the local Service Members’ Gift Fund. Mr. H. Castle was M.C. and the music was supplied by the Rushden Impregnable Players. A competition for a bottle of whiskey, organized by Mr. J. George, was won by Segt. T. L. Euriga, U.S.A. The total profit on the dance was £13 14s. 8d.
We have nothing about the Impregnable Players - please can anyone help?
