'The youngest of three brothers in the same House, George Sisson will be widely remembered for his unfailing good nature, and the kindness and straightness of his character. He attained to no high distinction while at School, but his influence was strong, and his devotion to his School unequivocal. He was entered for Clare College, Cambridge, but never went into residence, as he obtained a commission in October 1914, and joined the Expeditionary Force in France in September of the next year. He took part in much active service on the Western front, and was invalided home in October 1916. He returned in July 1917, and he was wounded and taken prisoner in November. He was reported to have died of his wounds on December 20th.' (Malvernian, Mar 1918).
