Streatham at War

On 13 November 2015, Bishop Thomas Grant School Year 9 and 12 students spent the afternoon using battalion war diaries from the First World War to find out about local men who had lost their lives in the conflict.  The historical writing they produced is available using the links below:


George Bailey by Louis, Year 12

Alec Scott Barthorpe by Patrick, Year 12

Arthur James Beckett by Brendan, Year 12

Edward Stephen Bell by Hareya and Sofia, Year 9

Douglas Robert McDougall by Emily, Year 9

James Mussard by Anna, Year 12

Herbert Vidler by Chad and Laura, Year 12

Francis Edward Watson by Andrea and Ashleigh, Year 12


In carrying out their research, students were supported by Professor Richard Grayson (Goldsmiths, University of London).  He was working as part of Living Legacies, utilising methods first designed for the Hemel at War Project.
