Old Boys Learn of Battlefields’ Trip
Friday, 15 November 2013
Former pupils at the Old Boltonians’ Association lunch were captivated by Paul Greenhalgh, a Year 12 student, who gave a thoughtful and insightful recount of the Boys’ Division First World War Battlefields’ Trip which took place during the summer holidays.
Thirty-nine Bolton School boys from Years 9 to 11 took part in the History trip to the First World War battlefields in France. As part of the visit the boys attended the dedication service for a new memorial which was inaugurated to remember those Old Boys of the school who lost their lives in the First World War. The service was held in St George’s Church in Ypres.
Included in the audience of Old Boys was Kenneth Lee (Class of 1940) who is Paul’s grandfather. Paul then sat with his Grandad and his friends afterwards for the lunch. The event was enjoyed by both young and old alike!
