This analysis of the World War One service of staff and former pupils of Yorkshire's Sedbergh School pays homage to each man who made the ultimate sacrifice. It lists whether they were in the army, navy or air force, before giving information about their area of service, military awards, rank, regiment and the like.

The level of information on each person does vary. A more minimal entry tells us that one C Adamson, a pupil in Evans House from 1902 to 1904, was a lieutenant in the Durham Light Infantry and served in France from 1916 to 1919. He subsequently died on the 8th September 1924.

The date and place of death is recorded of the 250 Old Sedberghians and four masters who fell during the conflict. Photographs of the memorials placed in the school's cloister conclude this poignant volume.
