LGS Remembers 13.11.14

In this very special year LGS held a very special service of remembrance.

The setting was the quadrangle and the whole school assembled to honour all those who gave their lives in the two World Wars and all other conflicts, not least – in this centenary year – the 58 Old Loughburians who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War.  Fittingly, as the two-minute silence ended the bells of the Tower clock rang out at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, bells which were presented by former headmaster Bingham Dixon Turner in honour of his son, Roger, who was tragically killed in Palestine in 1917.

The youngest boy in the School, Muhammad Naeem, laid a wreath at the war memorial in the Orangery, whilst Head of School, Henry Throp, did likewise in the Hodson Hall.
