Empire Day.

Did we celebrate Empire/Commonwealth Day in any shape or form? I'm blowed if I can recall doing so.

Re: Empire Day.

I do not remember any celebration of Empire Day at KBGS . I put it down to the war years as there wasn't much to celebrate in the first three years anyway . I do remember there being quite a lot of fuss about Empire day at Highfield School in the late 1930's but that would be before war broke out

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 43-46
