Culford School, near Bury St Edmunds, held their traditional Act of Remembrance on Friday, November 10.

Culford’s Combined Cadet Force, pupils, staff, Old Culfordians, parents and friends assembled on the north front outside Culford Hall for the service.

The school’s chaplain, Reverend Crompton-Battersby, led the service, which included an address by headmaster Julian Johnson-Munday who read out the 145 names of those connected to the school who died in combat.

A two-minute silence was then observed after pupils played The Last Post.

Wreaths were laid by the headmaster, senior head boy Joshua Stephens, senior head girl Nella Walters, prep head girl Edlyn Rai, prep head Boy Harry Wakefield and former Culford pupil, George Langley (1946-54) and head groundsman Tom Atkinson, the latter to commemorate estates staff who perished during conflict.

Guests progressed to the Garden of Remembrance, which was blessed by Rev Crompton-Battersby, to pay their respects and plant crosses in memory of loved ones. The morning concluded with a performance of the prep school choir.
