St George's Church Memorial Plaque

If ever you find yourself in Ypres, please do visit St George's Memorial Church. A plaque has recently been installed honouring the 59 Old Boys and members of staff who lost their lives in WW1

It is a fitting and sombre tribute to the young men whose lives were cut short, so brutally. 
This came about thanks to a generous donation from an OB who lost family members to the conflict.
