Thanks so much, very sobering as are many of the old public school chapels. I had a look at my copy of 'Public Schools and The Great War The Generation Lost' by Anthony Seldon & David Walsh and Eton had 1,028 pupils in 1914, 5,656 pupils served during the war, 1,157 were killed so 20.5% - a chilling percentage.
