School memorials are very difficult, but very rewarding to bring them into the public domain. I had the great priveledge to travel to the Battlefields earlier this year with a number of pupils from the school. They are proud of their memorial which is remembered every November.

I've just noticed the date range is 1939 to 1946. Is that unusual?
I wonder if it's because of Janet's date of death?

It could also be they had one or more serving in palestine which followed on directly from 1945
