a spot of History... "This Saddening List"

OK, I know this is a GEOGRAPHY blog, but Mr. Dixon has recently published the results of a 10 year task of researching the lives of the KES pupils on the honours board for the Great War. They travelled to some far flung places, and there's a lot of interest here.
There is a LYNN NEWS article here, and an EDP article here which gives more details.
The book is called 'This Saddening List', and features a very fine picture of Saltwick Nab, near Whitby!
The book costs just £10 and you can order a copy by ringing the school on 01553 773606, or visiting Waterstones in King's Lynn.
