The school magazine-1919

I have just found this new posting and found it to be the most moving document I have read in a long time. The harrowing account of having to witness the death by firing squad of one of your own followed by a biography of Old Boys died/killed in action, AND their photos, is something to digest and revisit. I lost both my grandfathers in France in that awful conflict. Looking through the names and there are so many familiar local names. Thankyou to whoever posted this tribute.

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 47-51
