A Challenge Cup

A challenge cup for the Hundred Yards race has been presented to the school by H.S. Bell and his brother, F.D.L. Bell, now in the Lower Sixth Modern.  Such gifts are particularly welcome, not merely for their own worth, but as a memorial of the donors.

A Report of His Loss (BGS Chronicle July 1917)

left the School 1914 after filling a conspicuous place in his House and in the School generally. He was reported 'missing' some time ago, and is therefore included in the Roll of Honour, though further news of him might possibly arrive, his friends will hope.
