Fifty-Five ‘Old Boys’ of Lewes County Grammar School for Boys died on active service in the Second World War in theatres of conflict all around the globe. Their monument is the impressive Memorial Chapel in the grounds of Priory School, built in 1960 and believed to be the only officially sanctioned war memorial in any state school in Britain. The book, ‘The Fifty-Five: A Story Set in Stone’ was launched on the night of Monday 12th March following a fascinating words and images presentation to the Lewes History Group evoking a world long gone, but one that must never be forgotten. The book, written by local author, David Arnold can be purchased via this website and paid for via PayPal.
