Paul Mason, Head of History at Crosfields School, has just authored and published Memorial Tablet: Marlborough House School and the First World War. It marks the centenary of the unveiling of the Marlborough House School (Reading) war memorial. Amazingly, the story of the whole war is able to be told through the experiences of the men who attended this small, now defunct, school in Reading.

This book may be of interest to Old Redingensians as the war experience of a number of ORs is documented. From Athol Trewman who died in the early months of the war to Hugh Dymore Brown who succumbed to the Spanish Flu in 1919. There are a further eight ORs who feature in the book.

Of appeal to anyone interested in the First World War, education history, school history, social history, and the history of Reading.

Some of the comments received about the book so far:

'It is a work of great scholarship and painstaking research, and yet it is accessible to the general reader.'

'I like the way you have found an occasional place for a bit of humour in spite of the generally sober subject.'

'This is absolutely super. I really like the way you have linked it to the historical background of the conflict.'

Currently retailing at £12.50 plus £2.50 UK postage. If you would like to purchase a copy, please email
