Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, who died during the two World Wars.
from Petty Officer C. Wightman, Royal Naval Air Service, M.E.F. [Bridgnorth Grammar School Magazine, July, 1915]
" Everything seems to be going along quite all right out here. I must say the Turks seem to be brave fighters, but they are no match for the Australian and New Zealand troops. I see Sergeant J. Griffiths among the wounded in the K.S.L.I, and I wonder if that is John Griffiths ol Entomological fame who used to share bedroom with me at B.G.S. I hope to come and see you all, if I am spared to come back. Shall be more than delighted to receive School Magazine if possible."
This memorial has mostly been compiled from official sources. It would be good to be able to expand it with more personal material - memories, stories, photos, etc. If you have any suitable material or any corrections please contact Greg. For news of updates follow @BridgnorthHeros on Twitter.
