As early as September L944 the club committee somewhat optimistically discussed the arrangements for resuming a normal level of operations once the war ended but it was a further year before events allowed these arrangements to be put into effect. The first A.G.M. since 1938 was held at the Rabbits Hotel, Manor Park on 13 September 1945 and Arthur Dove and Fred Fullalove were elected as the first post-war Secretary and Treasurer respectively under the continued Presidency of Frank Saunders, the Woodford businessman whose benevolence largely kept the club afloat during those years. The character of the Beagles had seen them through a quarter-century of difficulties and although the club did not realise it, happier times were just around the corner. Arthur Dove and Fred Fullalove - The first post war Hon. Secretary and Hon. Treasurer.
