Roll of Honour
Welcome to our Remembrance Page.
We are currently marking the Centenary of WW1 with a series of events and acts of remembrance.
Please visit our Centenary Remembrance Facebook Page, which is updated regularly with photos, archives, letters, diaries and other memories from the First World War, as well as information about what's happening to mark this Centenary in School.
King William's College was unique in having the only Army Cadet Force in Britain, which saw active service during the war. At the request of the Isle of Man Government, our pupils provided the Armed Guard for the prisoners-of-war who arrived by sea throughout the War, escorting them from the ship to the internment camps.
We think it is important to commemorate the enormous sacrifice made by members of our School community. 549 members of King William's College served in the First World War, of whom 139 (25%) were killed.
Their names are on the War Memorial outside the Chapel, but they were more than just names, and this Centenary provides a special opportunity for us to learn more about them and the role our School played in this key event in our history.
