This book contains an alphabetical list of all Old Salopians (pupils of Shrewsbury School) who are known to have served in the armed forces of the Crown during the Great War, and the obituary notices of nearly all those who died. At the beginning there is a very useful page of statistics giving such details as the total number who served (1850), killed, PW, wounded and how many times, totals of Honours and Awards (two VCs) and Mentions in Despatches, showing how many times. The nominal roll shows the highest rank held at any one time in the War, Honours and Awards (in bold), the House and date of leaving, casualties including PW, all in bold, and the House at school and date of leaving. The last sxty-five pages contain the obituaries.
