On Monday 13 November the School gathered in the Great Hall for its annual Service of Remembrance. We were delighted to welcome Cpt Keith Mills DSC as our guest. Captain Mills, then Lieutenant Mills, served with the Royal Marines in the Falklands Conflict and was the British Commander at the Battle of Grytviken. His contribution is commemorated in Mills Peak which is named in his honour.
We were also pleased to be joined by many Old Bristolians, former pupils and staff who were returning to the School to join with our community to remember and honour all those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
Our sincere thanks go to Cpt Mills for his thoughtful and thought-provoking address, reflecting on the reason and purpose of remembrance. Coming from a retired member of the armed forces, his reflections were particularly poignant.
