Prince Henry’s – A School at War

Author: Graham Shutt
ISBN 978-1910406-70-0

To mark the end of the war in Europe the flag was hoisted in front of the School, and on 8 May and 9 May 1945 there was a holiday to celebrate VE Day. On 10 May there was a short ceremony at Morning Assembly to celebrate the Allied victory.

This book is not only about those 463 ex-pupils and staff who were in the Armed Forces, forty-one of whom were killed in the War, or about those who were wounded, or those who were prisoners of war in German, Italian or Japanese hands. It is also about the life of the school in the years 1939 – 1945 and the 998 pupils who were there at the time, forty-one of whom were at Prince Henry’s for the length of the war. It is dedicated to everybody associated with Prince Henry’s Grammar School before and during the Second World War.

Lest we forget.
