Description
WW1-Wooden Board with a brass plaque for the fallen. WW2- Bronze Plaque Historically this record referred to a Dining Table as the memorial. It is unclear whether that is so (the wording gives no indication that it is and nor were the school aware that it was a memorial, although the associated grate and fireplace was gifted by one of the served and returned), but it is still included for completeness. The Memorial includes a sports pavillion, which has no wording on it, but the school archives have comprehensive records that this was its purpose.
