EDITORIAL NOTE 

The Record of Former Pupils serving in the War was commenced in the 
end of 1914 by the late Mr J. J. Trotter. On his death it passed into my 
hands. In 191 7 the work was taken up by Mr Gray, subsequently assisted 
by Miss Mackerchar, and put into form for publication on the lines laid 
down by the Executive Committee of the War Memorial Fund. In 1920 
Mr J. C. Stewart undertook the work of revising the MS., reading the 
proofs, and seeing the volume through the press. All those who from time 
to time have been in charge of the work received willing assistance from the 
other members of the staff. 

It has been thought well to confine the scope of the Roll to a simple 
record of facts. The following information has accordingly been aimed at 
in each case : the date of leaving School, scholastic and athletic distinctions 
gained at School, and a record of naval or military service. To have 
attempted anything in the nature of biographical appreciation must inevit- 
ably have led to inequality of treatment ; and where there was uniformity of 
endeavour there should be uniformity of recognition. 

In its present form the Roll contains 929 names. The number of 
those who fell is 174. An official copy will be preserved in the School, 
and any corrections or additional information sent to the Editor at the 
School will be embodied in this copy.

OYAE TE0NA2I 0ANONTEE 

SlMONIDES. 

" Fallen they are, but Death is not their guerdon." 
Poet of Hellas, thou wast well aware 
How that great faith can ease the mourner's burden, 
How in that hope is swallowed up despair. 

Enter the Porch, and open wide the portal. 

Fitly the sacred threshold is enshrined : 
Mortal they passed it, they return immortal, 

Laurel unfading round their temples twined. 

Lightly their ashes rest in distant places, 

Earth laps their clay with kindness of her own : 

Here doth Remembrance keep the radiant faces, 
Here of their voices the familiar tone. 

Meet is it in this place that we assemble. 

Are they not with us as we mingle here ? 
Can we not feel the air about us tremble ? 

Who can believe they are not very near ? 

Here would they sit in the fair flush of morning, 
Hence rose the hymn that ushered in the day : 

Here would the voice of age give kindly warning, 
Here was the moral pointed from their play. 



In Piam Memoriam 

Here was the likeness of their sires engraven, 
Here were a thousand gracious memories : 

Here their small world lay like a sheltered haven, 
Safe from the surge and stress of greater seas. 

Hence would they venture, borne on Fancy's pinion, 
Forth to the testing and the high emprise : 

Here the aspiring spirit's bright dominion 

Glowed from their faces and illumed their eyes. 

Hence to far Colchis in the good ship Argo 

Fared they with Jason and the flower of Greece, 

Backward returning with the precious cargo, 
Prize from what peril won, the Golden Fleece. 

Hence, when fair Helen with the Trojan stranger 
Left Lacedaemon and her lord betrayed, 

They with all Hellas shared the long-drawn danger, 
Saw the great debt in sack and ruin paid. 

Or, with /Eneas carrying Troy's Penates, 

Turned they their faces to the Western land : 

Each, to the homeless hero an Achates, 

Yearned for that city by the high gods planned. 

Oft would they company with stout Ulysses, 
Fain for his hearthstone and Penelope, 

Cloyed with Calypso's and with Circe's kisses, 
Fronting again the homeward tracts of sea. 

When on the shining city Persia's craving 
Cast the great shadow of a tyrant's throne, 

Ready in arms to perish for its saving, 
Charged they to victory at Marathon. 

They their great shields above them interlacing, 
Stood 'mid the arrows, when Leonidas, 

Nations in arms and odds unnumbered facing, 
Fell with his handful in the stricken pass. 



In Piam Memoriam 

And when the Athenians left in desolation 

Altar and temple for the foe to seize, 
Saw they at Salamis the great salvation 

Wrought on the waters by Themistocles. 

In the far East with Xenophon campaigning, 
They too did cheer, at last from peril free, 

When the tired Greeks, the final summit gaining, 
Shouted as from one throat : " The Sea ! The Sea ! " 

Out to the world's ends with the Roman legions 
Marched they beneath the eagle's tireless wing : 

Songs of the she-wolf in the Pontic regions, 
Songs of the Tiber by the Tweed did sing. 

They to the Capitol, to Jove's great altar, 
Climbed with victorious generals to pray, 

Kings' necks, encircled with a Roman halter, 
Gracing their triumph on the Sacred Way. 

From the Round Table, Arthur's hests obeying, 
Went they to play the part of perfect knight : 

Saw the great spears in press of combat swaying, 
Saw the swords swinging, for the battle bright. 

Heart of the Bruce, in silver casket gleaming, 
Followed they fast, amid the Moors to die : 

Saw on the field of Flodden moonlight streaming, 
Saw the dead king, ringed by his nobles, lie. 

And when in Europe Freedom's star was waning, 
They at Trafalgar were of Nelson's crew : 

They with the Guards, for hard-won victory straining, 
Charged on the sodden plain of Waterloo. 

«ae» -at* ji» jb. -m. 

*«• "A* *fc -R* ^ 

Reft of thy children, tearful, heavy-hearted, 

O Alma Mater, lift in pride thy head ! 
They into fuller life are but departed, 

" Fallen they are, but ah ! they are not dead." 

xi 



In Piam Memoriam 

Here by thy nurture was their spirit moulded, 
For a great cause and for great deeds prepared : 

And when the Treason, which the world enfolded, 
And the dark menace to the world was bared, 

They with a faith that could not fail or falter 
Leapt to the challenge, and despised the pains ; 

Laid their great hearts upon their country's altar, 
Spilled the red blood from unreluctant veins. 

Even in the carnage, to Love's ear arising, 

Rang a glad psalm up through the crimson sod ; 

Out of the shambles came, by God's devising, 
Calvary's glory and the praise of God. 

Yield not, O Mother, then, to Death's extortion, 

Death can but rend the vesture of decay. 
" Fallen they are, but Death is not their portion ;" 

Death cannot tear them from thy heart away. 

J. C. Stewart. 
October 1920.
