World War I


2488 members of the Winchester College community served in the armed forces during World War I. This figure includes teaching staff, Quiristers (younger boys who sing in the chapel choir), and pupils. 513 died, serving predominantly in the army. The total number of boys in the school, in any given year, between 1914 and 1918, was no more than 500. Effectively, Winchester College lost a generation of young men to the Great War.
