Remembrance Sunday

As we approach Remembrance Sunday,  here is a reminder of  last year's  the First World War poppies centenary display focusing on the story of a Tring Park estate worker -  Henry Arthur Davey. He was  injured during the Battle of the Somme Offensive during July 1916. He died of spinal wounds seven months later, having become paraplegic, as he was . He joined a Bedfordshire regiment aged 20; only a few years old than our own 6th Form. 

By the end of just one day’s fighting, the casualty list was extremely long, his regiment alone having lost 330 officers and men. Our current 2nd and 3rd Form pupils made a poppy for each of them and this decorated the entire academic corridor. An absolutely wonderful effort!
