World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district

It is easy to look back at notices like this one with the knowledge that many young men went to their death in the war.

However, it was a source of great pride at the time that these men were going to serve their country.

“Springfield Park School [Horsham]: In the lists of successful candidates for the Army issued this week, the names of six ‘Old Boys’ from this School appear, three having passed for Woolwich and three for Sandhurst.”
