December 1918

To you and all my dear Old Boys who

have lived through the Great War,

and have served our country on sea

or land or in the air, abroad, or in

home defence, or in other work of

national importance.

I am proud of you all and thank you

for the noble work you have done,

the great example you have set us

all, the sacrifices you have made, the

discipline and self-control to which

you have so willingly submitted, the

wounds maybe, and the hardships

you have borne.

I glory with you in the victory you

have won – you have fought in a just

cause and you have triumphed.

But the cost has been heavy: out of

four hundred and eight of you who

have served, eighty-three – eighteen

per cent – will come back to us here

no more. They have given their lives.

All honour to them, and we thank

God for them. Their memory will

not fade and their example will be a

possession for ever.

But their loss is a bitter grief to us

– At one time I looked forward to

a great Gathering of the Old Boys

when the war was over; but now

there would be too many empty

chairs; and too many ‘faces of old

ghosts’ looking in upon our feast;

and I do not feel that I could face it

at present…

Yours, with love and gratitude,

SKIPPER
