Quorn Rawlins Grammar School, Old Quornians Roll of Honour

There are three rolls of honour hanging in Rawlins school. The most recent of these (photograph below the names), was erected in 1952 by the ‘Old Quornians Association’. It contains the names of all those former pupils who fell in WW1 and WW2.

The two crests at the top of the board are, on the left: the Farnham Crest which was adopted by the school in 1938; and on the right the previous school crest, which was a tortoise.

The wording at the top says:
This tablet was erected by the Old Quornians Association as a memorial to those who fell in the wars of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 and as a tribute to all who served.

In memoriam 1914-1918
