” Spiritus intus alit.”
MEMORIAL Gateway erected at the main avenue of the School approach has inscribed upon it Five Hundred and Seventy Eight names, and the words:
“To the memory of 3,063 Cliftonians who served and 578 who fell in the War, 1914-1919′”
It was unveiled on June 30th, 1922,by Field-Marshal the Right Honourable Earl Haig, G.C.B., President of the College.
Clifton College has other connections with Oswestry. a master, AF Jones, educated at Oswestry School, was accidentally shot and killed by one of his pupils on the way from the rifle range; HB Richardson, an old boy and a prep school master died on 1 July 1906 in a bicycling accident in Oswestry; more happily another old boy, JMG Gray was organist of the parish church in the 1920s.
Another and perhaps more significant connection: HM Buller, who was Headmaster of Oswestry School before serving as assistant master at Clifton from 1892 to 1920 (so during Blake’s time)
