  1. World War One soldier honoured by students

    A World War One soldier, whose body was never recovered, has been honoured by students at the school where he taught in Bletchley in Buckinghamshire.

    Pupils at Sir Herbert Leon Academy have marked the Armistice centenary by naming a "silent soldier" memorial in the school garden after John Graham "Jack" Gillam, who was killed at the Battle of Loos on 27 September 1915, aged 24, and lies without a known grave in northern France.

    He was a former assistant master at the original Leon school in Bletchley, he lived in Fenny Stratford and also played rugby for Northampton Saints between 1911 and 1914.

    The "silent soldier" memorials are near life-sized silhouettes which, with a donation to The Royal British Legion, can be displayed to symbolise communities which took part in World War One.

    Head of history, Paul Salver, said: "By giving our silent soldier a name it has shown a human face to make a personal connection to remember the sacrifices of many young people in the Great War."
