Bournemouth Grammar School was founded in 1901; it was a mere 14 years old when war broke out and many of its first 'old boys' were fighting in France. Printed in the school magazines of 1914-1918, the letters written to the headmaster, Dr Edward Fenwick or 'Tig', by old boys describing their wartime adventures, and the articles and 98 obituaries written by Tig give a powerful sense of the spirit and the tragedy of the 'lost generation'.
