About the memorial: The war memorial at Hitchin Road Boys School was dedicated on 23rd July 1921. It comprised three boards, all made at the Waller Street Woodwork Centre. The large central board contained a separate dedication to teacher George Wells at the top, followed by the names of the Fallen Old Boys in five columns, then a verse from Vitai Lampada. The two smaller boards were for recording the school's ongoing sporting and scholastic achievements. This memorial is NOT the same as the Hitchin Road School memorial at Stockwood Park (WMO255046). WMO255046 has exactly the same wording as the original central board, but is much smaller, with the names in three columns rather than five. When and why the original memorial was replaced is a mystery. Hitchin Road School closed in 1967, so the pin is at its former location along Charles Street.
