The Winchester College at War website provides a brief biography for every member of the School community who perished in conflicts from the Crimea War onwards.

The biographies on this site are drawn from the Winchester College Rolls of Honour and service rolls, with additional information drawn from other School records and regimental histories. Please contact the College Archivist, Suzanne Foster, on sf@wincoll.ac.uk if you find any inaccuracies.
