MARLBOROUGH COLLEGE AND THE GREAT WAR IN 100 STORIES
In bringing to a conclusion our commemoration of those Marlburians who died in WW1 we are producing a book to tell the stories of a generation at war. It is a unique journey of reflection through which runs a strong sense of shared Marlborough heritage, experience and memory.
Along with the more familiar names of Charles Sorley (C1 1908-15), Sidney Woodroffe (B1 1908-14) and Siegfried Sassoon (CO 1902-04) the book includes personal family memories of OMs drawn from diaries and letters, snapshots of school life before and during the war, and stories behind commemorative objects and places on campus such as the Outerbridge window in Chapel and the Wedgewood Stone.
The book is published in May 2018 but we are taking orders now at a special pre-publication price of £35.00. Orders will be held and the book despatched to customers post publication.
