SOF Ypres Memorial Service

Monday 12 Jun 2017

Framlingham College and members of the Society of Old Framlinghamians held a service on Sunday 21st May 2017 in St George’s Memorial Church, Ypres, Belgium.

The service included the unveiling of a plaque installed in memory of the 150 Students, Masters and Staff who gave up their lives in the Great War. St George’s Memorial Church is decorated with memorials in honour of those who gave their lives for our freedom. Thanks to the generous benefaction from the SOF and the tireless work of Chris Essex, it was possible to add Framlingham College to the Memorial Chapel.

The brief service was conducted by the College Chaplain and Lt Colonel Myers-Allen laid a wreath. As part of the service Mr Norman Porter also paid tribute to the fallen with a recital of OF Alfred Victor Radcliff’s fitting poem –  Optimism. Chris Essex read Psalms 23. The service was supported by the local parish priest who spoke admirably of the dedication of the SOF’s and the College in remembering those you gave up their yesterdays for our todays. In the words of Alfred Radcliff – “For tiny hopes like tiny flowers of Spring, Will come, though death and ruin hold the land”.
