In recognition of the national Remembrance 100 campaign, an initiative to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War with 100 days of prayer, we will be honouring our Old Bryanstonians (OBs) who died in active military service during World War Two (1939-45).
In order that our community can remember too, we will be sharing details of those who fell each month on this page, on our alumni networking site, Beyond Bryanston and across our social media. As a school, our Chaplain, Revd Canon Andrew Haviland will be bringing these stories to light for our staff and pupils.
During November there will also be several Remembrance church services, finishing with a special Remembrance Day service on Sunday 11 November where we will honour those who died from Bryanston Village.
Tuesday 4 August 1914 was the first day of the war in which some 8.5 million soldiers were killed through combat, 21 million were wounded and 7.7 million were taken as Prisoners of War. Millions of civilians also died as a result of starvation, disease, massacres and military encounters.
In 1918, 4 August was observed as a National Day of Prayer following King George V’s request – 100 days later, the war ended.
