Book Launch

In 2014, to mark the centenary of the ‘war to end all wars’ Hitchin Historical Society will be publishing a remarkable piece of research, which charts the family and military histories of no less than 68 former pupils of the British School in Hitchin who lost their lives in that conflict.  Jean Handley’s book ‘Remembered with Pride’ will be published on June 28th 2014 to coincide with the launch of ‘A School at War’ Exhibition at the British Schools Museum.  Further details may be found here Book flyer
