Brighton Swimming Club is England's oldest continuously formed Swimming Club founded in 1860. For 150 years, members of the Club have been taking a daily dip in the sea, close to the Palace Pier.
This Pathé newsreel item shows "Ernest Trory and his friends" at the Swimming Club going for a winter swim in the sea off Brighton's snow covered beach, to celebrate Ernie's birthday.
The clip here is taken from the film 'A Seaside Birthday' ID No.698. For more information contact Screen Archive South East or visit their website.
