OSRG's Harry Patch Exhibition Closes

Two temporary exhibitions close this week in the School's Old Speech Room Gallery (OSRG).

To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, the OSRG has been displaying two studies of the last fighting Tommy, Harry Patch (1898-2009), by former Art beak Dan Llywelyn Hall. 'Harry Patch – England’s Last Fighting Tommy of WWI’ will be dismantled in December, along with a photographic exhibition charting the life of Old Harrovian, Christopher Powell-Cotton MC (The Grove 19313) . From his earliest years, through school, university, the Second World War, to his subsequent career in Uganda and life on the family estate in Kent, where he became a muchrespected magistrate and charity fundraiser, Christopher devoted his life to service – to his family, his country and his community.

Catch the last day of these exhibitions on Friday 30 November, between 2.30 and 5pm.
