Booklet: Old Boys killed in WW2
A superb booklet, researched and written by Philip Smith OBE BA, who was at Hartlebury from 1932 to 1938, is now available.
Painstakingly compiled and including illustrations, the booklet details the short lives of some 18 Old Boys who were lost in World War II. "The losses in both wars were high considering that Hartlebury was quite a small Grammar School and this was an example of the dedication to service and country of pupils from Grammar Schools", says Philip Smith in his introduction.
"Apart from those who lost their lives, hundreds served in difficult and dangerous areas of the War; many were decorated".
The booklet is available from Geoff Thorp - see Contact page - price £3.00, cash or cheque with order.
