"...Does any one know where we might get a copy of the score, or parts? ..."

Have you trie EMI Music? They bought up rancis, Day & Hunter and so *should* have their back catalogue (although whether they can be bothered to help is another matter).

"...I play in the Westinghouse Concert Orchestra and we are performing a VE Day Concert in May that will include a number of war time songs including "the Thing-ummy-bob"..."

One point to remember, if you are reproducing a 'working hours' type show (the type played over factory speakers to keep up morale) please remember that "Deep in the Heart of Texas" is a banned song (the clapping meant production losses).
