CASUALTIES FOR WORLD WAR II

The Memorial to the Old Boys who died in World War II is in the form of a book, created by Art Teacher the late Charlie Rowlands. It is kept just beneath the large memorial window, by the stairs in the entrance hall.

A list of the Old Boys, and links to the pages of the book where they are named, may be found here: Old Pharosians  

May we recommend also a search of the school photos, held at The School Archives, maintained by Paul Skelton, where some of our casualties are pictured, for example, in school sports teams. There are also panoramic photos, where others, such as Keith Gillman (1936, Segment 1, Row 6, number 8) may be found.
