Today marks the 74th Anniversary of VE Day. Although we cannot be together in Speech Room, our boys and staff will be joining the rest of the nation for a two-minute silence at 11am, to honour the service and sacrifice of people during the Second World War.
The names of the 642 Old Harrovians who lost their lives in the First World War are recorded on the walls of the Crypt Chapel, and those who died in the Crimea and Boer Wars are recorded in the South Aisle and Lady Chapel. Those who died in the World Wars and in subsequent military action are also commemorated in the War Memorial Building. Recently, a plaque has been added to commemorate those who fought in the Battle of Britain.
