Lest We Forget….
The School Council supported the sales of Poppies and other Remembrance Day items in the week leading up to 11th November. We have received a letter of thanks from the British Legion. Each year we remember those that have served, died or were injured in The Great War and subsequent wars and conflicts.
We remember too, past pupil Pt. Thomas Young, who served as a stretcher bearer in the D.L.I. in the Great War. Thomas was awarded the Victoria Cross. The VC is the highest and most prestigious award of the British honours system. It is awarded for valour “in the presence of the enemy” to members of the British Armed Forces. As a little lad Thomas attended Hedworth Lane School and he is our ‘Hero’!
