Rev John Fairweather-Tall

It is with huge sadness and a heavy heart that I have to pass on the news that Rev John Fairweather-Tall passed away this morning. He was a towering presence within the Old Suttonian Association and his stewardship of the book The Story Of Sutton leaves a document with unsurpassed information regarding the history of Sutton and the exploits of the boys who went there. On a personal level he was of huge assistance to me as editor of The Bulletin and curator of our website and was always a willing helper ready to lend support in any way he could. RIP.

We Shall Remember Them

In total 81 Old Suttonians were killed on service during WW1, 95 during WW2 and 5 in peacetime making 181 in total.

H.H. Delany, A.A. Hill, C.W. Horne, E.W Parsons and H.H. Sincock were lost in peace time.

These words from the school song seem very apt:

“We raise thanksgiving

For those who went before, and, passing on,

Pointed our way of working, playing, living.

Still their tradition stands, though they are gone.”

With many thanks to Rev. John Fairweather-Tall for his help in compiling this list.
