We regret to have to add, at this late date, yet another name to our long list of victims of the War. Archibald Dunn, Lance-Corporal in the 2nd Battalion of the Leinster Regiment was killed at Hazebrouck by shell fire on the night of June 14th, 1918. Dunn came to the School in September, 1900, as a boarder at Tesdale House, and he was with us for a short 
time only.

Note: News of Archibald Dunn's death was received too late for his name to be included on the war memorial in the school chapel.
