About this memory
The final act as every leaver was dispatched into the wide world through the Memorial Doors which led from the Assembly Hall onto the front of the school.
The Rector shook your hand and gave you such words of wisdom as "Don't get into trouble"
My first act was to remove my tie and light up a cigarette.!!
The Door bears a Greek inscription translating to" They died but did not die"
