Borden Grammar School continue to remember Old Boys who gave their lives during the First World War. Here is an extract from a recent Sittingbourne News Extra newspaper, reporting the boys visit to Ypres and the recently unveiled Memorial Plaque.
The school, being aware of the 37 Old Bordenians who died in the First World War, are looking at ways that they can commemorate them during the centenary years. They started by finding the graves or memorials of about 7 of them whilst in Ypres and the Somme and also located one of them in Sittingbourne Cemetery recently (see pictures below) whilst being filmed by a company making a film for Swale Council to mark the 30,000th last post ceremony which takes place in Ypres in July. Students of the school also attended a last post ceremony held in Sittingbourne - again, it was being recorded for the Swale council film.
