1945 onwards War Memorial

War Memorial (2012)

Warwick School has always been immensely proud of OWs who have joined the armed forces, and those who have gone on to serve in various areas of conflict around the world. The two original War Memorials in the school chapel record the names of those who laid down their lives for their country up to 1945: 90 in the First (88 pupils and 2 staff) and 60 in the Second World War. 

A great deal of research has gone into proving that there were 2 OWs who died in conflict situations after normal hostilities ceased in 1945, and the new memorial in the entrance to the chapel includes them and also the name of Joe Whittaker, killed in Afghanistan in 2008.
