Second World War
No meetings for 18 months - Second World War
The war was a mixed blessing for the SBCI. With little infrastructure or manpower to fall back on when it lost men to the forces, continuity disintegrated and after 1939, the Club limped along on sporadic enthusiasm rather than structured planning.
There was no committee meeting between March 1940 and September 1941, at which point the Club ceased to function and the ground fell into five years of neglect.
