World War One Plaque at Malvern College Chapel. (An additional 2 from the 457 recorded have since been discovered.)

List of Malvern College First World War Casualties

The following is a list of the 459 people who attended Malvern College and died due to the First World War.
There was not a month from August 1914 to November 1918 that an Old Malvernian did not become a casualty, with 6 killed on the first day of the Battle of Loos on the 25th September 1915 and 13 killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme on the 1st July 1916.
The vast majority of casualties occurred in France and Belgium with 31 names recorded on the Menin Gate at Ypres, and 23 at Thiepval. There were also 23 casualties in Turkey due to the Gallipoli Campaign, and 16 in Iraq, including 2 near Kut.
They were in a wide range of regiments including 26 in the Royal Field Artillery, 13 in the Royal Engineers, 12 in the Worcestershire Regt, 11 in the Canadian Inf, 11 in the East Kent Regt (The Buffs), and 5 in the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Air Force.
Most were officers with 133 Captains, 125 2nd Lieutenants, 114 Lieutenants, 26 Majors, and 15 Lieutenant Colonels.
22 received the MC, 5 the DSO and 1 the DCM, as well as 3 knighthoods (the CB, CMG, and MVO).

The information below is based primarily on the memorial books held at Malvern which Ian Quickfall, and now Paul Godsland, the Malvernian Society archivists, have arranged to be digitised with the official memorial web site still in development.
Information was also obtained from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, and the Unit War Diaries and Service Records held at the National Archives in Kew.

The main battles have tried to be identified in which Old Malvernians died in. Many though were killed in the general attrition of Trench Warfare which was so vividly described in the book 'Nothing of Importance' by Bernard Adams.

John Bernard PyeAdamsNo 81904 - 1909CaptainRoyal Welch Fus.27 February 191727Died of woundsFranceCouin New British CemeteryB.3. 1st Bn. Royal Welsh Fusiliers

Son of Harold John and Georgina Adams, of St. John's, Oakwood Avenue, Beckenham, Kent.

After Malvern where he was a school prefect, he won a scholarship to St John's Cambridge where he studied Classics and Economics.

He enrolled in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers in November 1914, and was in France from October 1915 to June 7th 1916 where he was wounded. During his convalescence he wrote about his experiences in the trenches in a very detailed and vivid manner in the book 'Nothing of importance'. It can be read at
https://archive.org/stream/nothingimportan00adamgoog#page/n5/mode/2up

He returned to the front in January 1917 and a few weeks later he was severely wounded leading his men in an attack on Serre on the 26th February and died the following day in hospital. His fellow officers included 2nd Lieutenant Siegrfried Sassoon who according to the Unit War Diary was 'struck off' on the same day. Siegrfried Sassoon while at Craiglockart Hospital gave Wilfred Owen his annotated copy of 'Nothing of Importance' when he heard that Owen was going back to the front in October 1917. The book is now in the 'Wilfred Owen Collection' at the Weston Library, part of the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford. Sassoon wrote on the fly leaf that he is referred to as Scott in the book.
The full annotations made by Sassoon can be seen at:
