Dame Allan's War Memorial

Dame Allan’s War Memorial

The 1914-18 War Memorial for Dame Allan’s pupils has pride of place in the Newsom Hall, alongside other such memorials from the Boer and Second World Wars. It was moved to the new school premises in Fenham in 1935, from the staircase of the original school buildings in Newcastle. The memorial lists eighty-four Allanians who died as well as the significant honours awarded to old boys and staff who fought in all the services. A total of 652 Allanians are known to have served, a massive number for a school whose roll stood at just 185 boys in 1906.

A school research group set about researching each of the fallen. This poster contains just a few.
