'Arthur Percy Hamilton joined No. 1 in September 1898, being placed in the Army Side. He was an attractive boy of a quiet modest nature. His health was unfortunately not strong, and on this account he left school before he was able to attain any high position. His character when with us gave indications of the spirit which was afterwards to lead to distinction in the Army. He was killed in action on September 15th.' (Malvernian, Nov 1916).
