100 years since Battle of the Somme ended

Friday 18 Nov 2016

Today (Friday, 18th November 2016) marks the 100th anniversary of the final day of the Battle of the Somme. History teacher, Marcus Marvell has produced a set of slides on how the battle affected Framlinghamians.

The Framlinghamian 1919 Magazine read as follows:

‘With this issue another eventual year is rapidly drawing to a close, and again we have to chronicle sad losses of more of our brave schoolfellows who have sacrificed their lives in this never-ending war.

Fourteen more names, of gallant men whom the world can ill afford to lose, have been added to the Roll of Honour since our last issue – the longest additional list it has so far been our sad lot o publish.’
