When I was at Wesley, we always had a memorial service for the brave past pupils who lost their lives in World War 1. (and 2) The school chapel adjacent to the main building on St. Stephen's green was dedicated to these brave ex Wesley boys. I was in the choir and I stood right next to the big plaque on which all the names of the Old Wesley boys who lost their lives was situated in the chapel. It's good to see that these brave Wesley lads have not been forgotten. William (Billy) Butt (WCD 1952 - 1963)
I read the fascinating article by Senator Neale Richmond about the Wesley College rugby team today in The Daily Mail! It is a poignant tribute to the sacrifice that they were willing to make and the price that they paid for their heroism during the War!
4 out of 15 is a bit above the average of 1 in 10 who didn’t come back alive.

Past Pupil Senator Neale Richmond gave the address at today’s moving Remembrance Service. He later tweeted that he was “Honoured to return to my old school this morning to deliver the address at the centenary assembly marking the armistice: 600 boys went from the school to fight, 86 of them didn’t come home. They gave their today for our tomorrow” #WeWillRememberThem ... See MoreSee Less

Senator Neale Richmond gave a very moving tribute to his two grand uncles from Cavan who fought and gave their lives during World War One in his article! It makes for a fascinating read of how the dead of World War One and World War Two are now getting the recognition that they deserve!

Graham Darlington did an amazing job on the display cabinet during Saturday morning and giving people a talk about the items inside it as well as the recreation of the trench firing step and the dugout! It is a very moving tribute to the Wesleyites who fought and died during the war and to Mr Darlington’s ancestors who got caught up in the conflict as well!
We will remember. 3 generations of my family ❤️🇬🇧
