Elstree School Remembers
On the Saturday, 11th November Mr Inglis led a short service of Remembrance – this followed the earlier Home Farm Act of Remembrance. The Service opened with the bagpipes playing from the Long Room whilst the school stood in the Front Hall, before the Headmaster said a few words.
The oldest boy from each house then laid a wreath on behalf of their house, and Mr Baxter placed a wreath on behalf of the staff at the Memorial which is in the porch. The Memorial has the names of the 139 former Elstree boys who lost their lives in the First and Second World War. Six trumpeters then played the Last Post and Reveille from the Long Room as the school stood in silence and contemplation.
On Sunday morning we welcomed Captain Maddan, from the 5th Battalion The Rifles to preach to the boys.
