The Mounting Of Edmund De Wind VC (249) Replica Medals

A Replica Set Of Medals Posthumously Awarded To Edmund De Wind VC (249) Are Proudly Displayed In The Central Hall.
A replica set of medals awarded posthumously to Edmund De Wind VC (249) are now proudly displayed in the Central Hall.

The medals sit at the rear of the Hall to the left of the three Ceramic Poppies.

Replica medals awarded to William English VC (406) were mounted in the Hall earlier this year and sit to the right. 

These medals formed part of the end piece to The Men Behind The Glass project which concluded recently with the production of the school play, under the same name.

"The Men Behind the Glass" play was specially written for the College by Liz McIlvenny, Head of Drama, with music composed by Composer in Residence, Mr David Catherwood. It was quite excellent, and a fine tribute to those OCs who served or gave the ultimate sacrifice in WW1.
