After World War II

Although there was no more dancing in public after 1939, there were still many men in the village who knew the dances, and they met and danced occasionally after World War II, although not in costume. Sid Russell continued to train boys' sides at the school, teaching the Brighton Camp and Figure Eight dances. The first Foreman of the current side, Keith Green, learned these dances in 1952; the 1953 side (below) danced in public for the Queen's Coronation.
