Ludgrove remembers its fallenLinks in this section
“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them”.
The School’s poignant Act of Remembrance gathered the community together to honour those Old Ludgrovians who gave their lives during the two World Wars, and those from Wixenford, the school that occupied the site before Ludgrove moved to Wokingham in 1937.
Tarka and Arthur heralded the two-minute silence by playing The Last Post, a beautiful sound that echoed around the Quad. Captain of School, Alex, also played an important role by reading 'In Flanders Field' to the assembled boys.
To draw the Act of Remembrance to a close, a piper led the School from the Quad to the Chapel where the youngest boy, Magnus, lay a wreath of poppies on the altar.
Lest we forget.
