Morris men in WW1

 An excellent (and surprisingly accurate for a newspaper article on morris) piece about the morris demonstration team of the English Folk Dance Society who fought in the Battle of the Somme, and mostly died there.

I'd come across some of the names before.

George Butterworth can be seen dancing in one of these clips form 1912  (and you may also note the existence of women like Maud Karpeles dancing at this date.)

THis is a precious documment! The ceremony commemorating this terrible battle was hidden behind the Brexit events...
Very interesting, thank you!
