Unveiling of a War Tablet

The company then adjourned to the schoolroom, where the above tablet was unveiled.
Dr Barnard said that nearly twenty old boys took part in the South African war  either in the regular army, the Volunteers or the Yeomanry  and out of that number they had to lament the death of two, in memory of whom that tablet had been erected.

The Mayoress (Miss Knott) then unveiled the tablet, which bears the inscription:
 In memory of Cecil Herbert Warren, of the 28th Company Imperial Yeomanry, who died at Johannesburg of wounds, 11th Oct., 1900, aged 26; at school 1886-1892. Also of Frank Ernest Lowless, of the 10th Company Imperial Yeomanry, who died of fever at Naauwnpoort, 30th December, 1901, aged 21 years; at school 1894-1896. Erected by Stamford masters and boys.
