2016 Remembrance

The Rev Stanley Evans, OBA, officiated and Borden Grammar School's captain and vice-captain took part in the service which included the laying of a wreath beneath the school memorial boards.

Old Bordenian Marc Stewart gave a short lecture about the life of one fallen old boy, George King, who lost his life aged 18 when his ship was torpedoed by a German U Boat in the Indian Ocean, a poignant reminder for those present of the ultimate sacrifice made by so many former pupils of the school.
