Exhibition Scholarship (BGS Chronicle December 1915)
Quartermaster-Sergeant S.L. Hall, who was serving with the Engineer section of the Royal Naval Division, died as the result of a severe shall wound sustained while on service in the Gallipoli Peninsula. He was at the School from 1905-1909, and rose rapidly to the Lower VI Modern. He went on to Bristol University, and did very well in the Engineering School: later he won the 1851 Exhibition Scholarship of £150 for further study. He impressed everybody who had to do with him with his strong common-sense, his power of judgment, and his marked scientific ability, and his death has cut short a career of much promise.
