The Ascham St Vincent's Memorial Arch in Eastbourne (located on Carlisle Road), commemorates the old boys of St Vincent's, Ascham and the merged prep school who died serving in the First World War. Their stories are told in this book from the school Chronicle's accounts of their schooldays, from war records, newspapers and letters, taking us through the war from the Western Front to Mesopotamia, from the cavalry charges on the Retreat from Mons in 1914 to the devastating 'flu pandemic of 1918.
