Football was a big part of the area's "working men's" recreation.  Most of the 1906 Falcon team would have been Brush employees.


Many Brush workers served in the British military during World War One "To end all Wars!" as it was said at the time.  A memorial to the fallen is honored each November 11th a plaque with the names of those killed.  Here is a photo of Loughborough area men who were called up (conscripted and volunteers) waiting to catch the train to basic training camp.  Brush factory in the background (right side).
