Forty-eight Old Boys from Magdalen College School, Oxford were killed in the carnage of The Great War. Six of the boys are immortalized by the names of the six Houses of the School. But the 42 young men have great stories to tell and what better time to tell them than one hundred years on?In addition to the double VC winner, Noel Chavasse and Fox Russell VC, those honored in this fine book include a 1st Class cricketer Francis Roberts and a member of the inaugural Welsh Rugby team, Richard Garnous Williams. Their accounts cover the span of The Great War years and theaters. As well as describing their military adventures, we read of their school careers and characters.
