Further information

From the Isle of Wight County Press 13th November 1920 :

... At St John's-road Boys' School the headmaster (Mr M R Jones) wrote an address which was read to the scholars by P Fisher, one of the boys. The 280 names on the school war-roll were read out, the school cenotaph, having a wreath of ivy placed on it, was saluted, and the names inscribed read out. Following three minutes' absolute silence the boys gave three cheers for the Empire's success and peace, and sang God Save the King".
