'Honours, wounds etc'

Whilst researching the WW2 Roll of Honour using the Wyvernians memorabilia, Brian Screaton came across a small envelope labelled 'Honours, wounds etc' . It contains press cuttings about 16 former City Boys pupils who were wounded during the War, became prisoners of war, &/or received honours of some kind (eg for their bravery). This additional information can be viewed in the usual place on the Wyvernians web site - or you can go straight to it here:-

Second World War Memorial

Our Treasurer, Brian Screaton, felt that the 75th anniversary of D-Day was an ideal opportunity to research and produce an article about those 77 fallen ex pupils whose names appear on the WW2 memorial board. The board was restored in 2007 to its original place in the Great Hall at Clarence House (the old school building in Humberstone Gate). Brian's article, based on the contents of the Wyvernians memorabilia, is now here on the Wyvernians website and can be accessed via the Memorabilia section/ War Memorial Boards page - or you can go straight to it here;
