Bangor Grammar pupils report on their school's sacrifice in World War One


Pupils at Bangor Grammar School in County Down have been investigating their school's sacrifice during World War One.

The School Reporters learned that almost a quarter of the pupils from the school who served in the conflict were killed in action.

The school's archivist also presented the pupils with a very special war medal.
