  • First World War (1914-1918)
About the memorial: From haileybury.com: 'Memorial Hall (1932). In 1921, the War Memorial Committee met to discuss the possibility of building a new Dining Hall at Haileybury. After a number of delays, a design was eventually chosen featuring the work of Sir Herbert Baker whose many successes included work with Sir Edwin Lutyens in New Delhi. Work started in October 1930 and the Hall was opened by the Duke and Duchess of York on 7 July 1932. Memorial Hall, as the building is known, is refined and elegant in appearance; daily, over 700 pupils come for breakfast, lunch and supper. Beneath its shallow dome, pupils enjoy an atmosphere of simplicity and space, taking their meals at long, wooden Thompson of Kilburn refectory tables beneath the watchful eye of paintings featuring Haileybury’s Masters of the last 150 years.'
