My copy of Bk 9 has no date and cost 2/6d. In the back pages it has details of
the Executive Council for 1935/36 and was copyrighted in the USA in 1934
Bars are as follows:
33-36 First couple giving right hands, cross over and cast off one on opposite
37-40 They turn each other and fall back into second place on their own sides
of the dance.
Presumably this means they turn once round for 2 bars and then retire for 2
