About the memorial: Hopton wood stone tablet set within a moulded Ancaster stone frame. Frame has a carved paterae and is surmounted by a battlemented cresting above which is a niche with the figure of St George and the dragon in it. Our war memorial commemorates over forty ex-pupils and staff who lost their lives in the service of our nation. We are proud that two former pupils were awarded the highest military honour, The Victoria Cross. Albert Ball, V.C was a pupil in 1906/07 and Joseph Tombs, V.C. was a pupil in the early 1900’s. The top 2 lines are in very formal latin, of the type seen on Italian monuments, the translation by Morris Felton is The honourable death of these brave-hearted young men was not in vain. The very model for our scholars.
