They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Robert Laurence Binyon (1869-1943),
published in The Times newspaper on 21st September 1914.

 

treaseToday we learned of Reginald Earnest Trease who attended the High School from 1898 aged 8 to 1905, aged 16 with his brother, Sidney. At School, Reggie was a Colour Sergeant High School Officers Training Corp. Captain of the Football Eights and a member of the 1st Team Football 1905. After school he rowed for Nottingham Rowing Club and was a Reservist.  He enlisted in the Royal Field Artillery at the beginning of the war and fought his way through to the end only to die of his wounds and Spanish Flu.

Trease won the Distinguished Service Order “for conspicuous gallantry and devotion duty” acting as artillery liaison officer during an attack. He was also awarded the Military Cross, and was recommended for a Victoria Cross. He was also mentioned in dispatches four months later for bravery.
