ROLL OF HONOUR – THE FALLEN
In 2014 a small commemorative exhibition was held at the College, inspired by a memorial plaque to former students who had died during the First World War. Percy Metcalfe, the sculptor responsible for the memorial, had himself interrupted his studies at the College to join the army. He later returned to the College following the end of the war and his discharge from the army.
Research has continued into those named, as well as ‘others’ alluded to in the memorial text. This web exhibition of the “Fallen” is the result.
As with the memorial itself, no distinction has been made between those who may have already left the College before the outbreak of war and those who left during their studies. It is also inclusive, acknowledging deaths caused in some way by the war, which were not always on the battlefield.
Please use the menu bar above to select a year of the conflict and find the names of those who died.
We hope at each centennial year’s end, up to 2018, to add biographical and service details for each of those we have identified.
