For a small grammar school, the loss of 31 former pupils and one master in the First World War was a heavy toll. Theirs was also a remarkably distinguished record with many awards for gallantry, including a Victoria Cross. Tracing the combatants back to their schooldays in Stratford-upon-Avon, this book tells the story of each of the old boys' engagements on the battlefields of the Western Front, Italy, Salonika, Macedonia, Gallipoli, Bulgaria and Russia.
