Today, at ten minutes to eleven on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, S. Anselm’s pupils gathered on the Headteacher’s Lawn to honour all those who have fought in the service of our country. 

This year we particularly commemorated the service given by all Anselmians who fought in the Great War, and shared an account by Donald Storrs Fox, the eldest son of S. Anselm’s first Headmaster.  He survived the war and wrote an evocative account of his service in the Royal Flying Corps, in which he was shot down during the final days of the war and captured by the Germans.
