Article on the Eton KRRC Great War Memorial shown above ....
(from 1920 KRRC Chronicle)
The King's Royal Rifle Corps Memorial at Eton [KRRC Chronicle, 1920 pp.162-165].pdf
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.
Thank you Mark
For the description of the laying of the tablet memorial.
And Rob for the percentage
