Dunstable Grammar School Old Boys

Fallen in The Great War


We don't know for certain how many Old Boys of Dunstable Grammar were involved in the world conflict of 1914-1918 but what we do know, from the Roll of Honour situated in the School library, is that more than 60 of them gave up their lives for their country. Those who were killed or died from illness and disease were involved in every theatre of the war. Representing all of the services on active duty, they saw action in France, Belgium, Turkey, Mesopotamia (Iraq), Africa, Palestine and Egypt.

To mark the Centenary of the start of the War and to honour their memory, a book, Dunstable Grammar School Old Boys - Fallen in The Great War, published by The Association, is now available and contains the personal and service details of those who died.

Painstakingly researched by our Vice-Chairman Robin Marriott, using the Regimental War Diaries, the officers’ service records, letters from their commanding officers and in some cases witness accounts, the book gives the details of each man, many with their photograph, their regiment and the location of their grave or memorial. Also, where possible, the circumstances of their death have been recounted.
