Welcome to our Remembrance Page.
Please visit our Remembrance Facebook Page, which features photos, archives, letters, diaries and other memories from the First World War.
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.
“OKWs around the world share a common background of having spent some of the most memorable times together on the Isle of Man. Those memories and values we share due to our time at King William’s College are unique.”OKW
