Oundle School Memorial Book

961 men who were educated at or served on the staff of  Oundle School are known to have served in all branches of the Armed Forces during The First World War.

Avalon took on the task of bringing together details and photographs of the 222 men who made the supreme sacrifice for their Country.

The book is of A4 format and 256 pages.  Wherever possible a photo of the man has been included. There is also a list of every man who served.

I would recommend the book to anyone with an interest in either Oundle School or The First World War.

Please contact Avalon at for details.
