   Tradition plays a very great part in our Nation’s Life and in those of its Institutions.        
      Normally, Tradition grows with age. Tynemouth Municipal High School is
   young, only opened in 1904 – but even now has its tradition – noble tradition! 
      Have not many youths, who found there their Educational home, fought in the
   hideous and devastating European War of 1914-19?
      Have not sixty-nine laid down their lives for King and Country? Sorrow touches
   us at their loss; pride holds us by their example! These War Memorials express our
   sorrow and testify our pride.
      What the future has in store for us, no one knows, but one thing is certain: those
   who shall pass the portals of this School, or assemble in its Great Hall, will have ever  
   recorded before their eyes the gallant response of former Scholars to the National Need               
   of their time; they will be quickened to duty by their example; they will be tried and
   not found wanting.

   A Tribute to “Our Boys.”
   From Alderman Isaac Black, J.P.

    “Blow out, you bugles, over the rich dead!
   There’s none of these so lonely, and poor of old,
   But, dying, has made us rarer gifts that gold.
   These laid the world away; poured out the red
   Sweet wine of youth; gave up the years to be
   Of work and joy, and that unhoped serene,
   That men call age; and those who would have been
   Their sons, they gave, their immortality.”

      Rupert Brooke’s beautiful words seem to me to be singularly appropriate in a
   volume of this kind, designed as it has been to commemorate the Nobility, the
   Gallantry, and the undying Heroism of the Old Boys of the Tynemouth Municipal High
   School, who so readily responded to their country’s call in her hour of dire need. Many
   of those boys have, in the picturesque language of the army, “gone west,” but the
   memory of their sacrifice will ever remain as an inspiration and an incentive to
   unselfish and patriotic service to the country we love, and to mankind.
      To those bereaved there is consolation in the thought that the boys they loved
   sacrificed themselves cheerfully in the cause of Freedom and Right. Their names 
   shall live, though they are no longer with us.

    “If I should die, think only this of me:
   That there’s some corner of a foreign field
   That is for ever England . . .”

                              Isaac Black
                              Chairman, Borough of Tynemouth

      As we read their names and look upon the row of boyish faces, given in this Memorial
   volume, the faces of those who were wont to pass through the gates of our school, so
   buoyant and glad, so radiant with promise for the future, we cannot but think of the toll
   of young, incomplete lives which has been taken by this war. And these bur examples
   of the thousands and thousands who have fallen in the ranks. The pathos of it all!
   What does it mean? we cry. To what purpose is this waste? It is impossible not to
   ask such questions, and it is impossible to answer them with full knowledge, for the ulti-
   mate secret of the universe is beyond our reach. But can we really think of all this young
   life as wasted? There is a great deal of so called waste, no doubt, in the universe, and
   there is a sense in which human life may be apparently wasted. Of some few lives
   we might say that the world would be none the poorer if they had never been, though
   we have no certainty that even this limited statement is true. But there can be no
   thought of waste about these lives which have been so freely laid down for the general
   good. In their lesser human degree such deaths share the sublimity of the death upon
   the Cross. However imperfectly realized, however much mixed with lower motives,
   the true spirit of self-sacrifice is there, and gives a spiritual completeness to the incom-
   pletely developed character. “It is finished,” we may say, as we think of some such
   heroic death. The hardships are over, the duty is done, the life is completed and
      This bright, willing, surrender by our School-heroes of all that they had to offer,
   is one of the great reassuring facts of the War. We had been told so often by critics
   what a degenerate race we were, that we had almost come to believe them. But it was
   not true. So far from being true, some of the most conspicuous examples of gallant
   achievement at the cost of death have been given by those whose prospects in life were
   fairest. Men of every position in life stood shoulder to shoulder and vied with each 
   other in the courage with which they undertook desperate rescues of wounded comrades
   or other adventurous exploits. And as the Roll of Honour grows longer and longer, our
   pride almost overmasters our grief, and amongst them some of our boys from this School.

         “A remnant of our Spartan dead!
         Of the three hundred grant but three
         To make a new Thermopylae!”

   From the Rev. R.E. Holmes, M.A.,
   Vicar of Tynemouth & Chairman of the Governors.

      In loving pride our tears start afresh as we look at their portraits and think of the
   dear ones whom we here commemorate. But there is a City (we are told) where God
   shall wipe away all tears, and in his vision, St. John saw its twelve gates with “names
   written thereon,” – names that proclaimed the unity of God’s people. Now our School-
   gates have names inscribed, the names of those whom we delight to honour. As we enter
   or pass by each day, we shall always see them there. They will call us to unite in the
   service of the Highest and they will bid us make our names honourable, for we are told
   of the Heroes of the Faith (Hebrews xi. 40) that “they without us should not be made
   perfect,” and, lest the sacrifice of our brave lads be in vain, we must still remember
   that we who remain must prove ourselves worthy of them and their self-sacrifice. With
   single voice they call us to be ready to risk all for truth and righteousness.

   The School’s Record in the Great War,

      To write of the share taken by our Old Boys in the Great World-struggle is to me
   a matter of deep sorrow and humble pride. It is given to few Headmasters to know
   every Old Boy that has passed through his School, but such is my happy lot.
      My heart was strangely moved as I saw the eager response of the lads to the call
   of King and Country in the hour of the Nation’s peril. More than half of the Old Boys of
   military age were with the colours before the inception of the Derby Scheme, and many
   more irked to join them but were pressed to remain with their firms engaged on all-
   important Admiralty and Munition work. And this apart from the large number of
   Sea-going Engineers and Ships’ Officers in the Mercantile Marine who braved the dangers
   of mine and torpedo to secure the Nation’s food-supply! No less than 75% of our Boys
   were serving before the Military Service Act came into force.
      On the one hand, boys who distinguished themselves in studies rallied nobly to the
   County’s call, and on the other, many lads who had little taste for school studies and
   tasks served equally finely when the crisis came.
      It was my great privilege to keep in touch with practically every boy in camp and
   trench, at home and on the foreign field, in the sleepless coast-patrol or scouring the
   high seas. Their spirit was ever splendid, their love for the old School never waned, and
   it was my constant joy to have their affection and confidence.
      They had set out with nothing to fight and suffer for except honour and justice
   and the protection of the weak, but that was enough.

       “We must be free or die, who speak the tongue
       That Shakespeare spake; the faith and morals hold
            Which Milton held.”
Page 7

      When at last the end of the great struggle came, in the Providence of God, victory
   rested on our banners. But at what cost of untold sacrifice, endurance and loyalty!
   No fewer than 69 of our dear lads have made the supreme sacrifice. This precious toll
   is the heavy price of our Liberty. Their parents have at least this deep and abiding
   consolation, the Right has triumphed and “whatever record leap to light,” they “never
   shall be shamed.” The plain record set out in this Memorial Book speaks for itself.
      Our School took its rightful share of the world-task, and took it gladly.
      We cannot forget the sixty-nine. An Oak Memorial provided by the Staff and
   present pupils is to be placed in the Large Hall of the School. It will bears the names of
   all Old Boys who served and it will remind future pupils of the School of their debt and
   their duty.
      The members of the Old Students Union are placing handsome Bronze Tablets in
   the stone panels of the main gateway; these will bear the names of the gallant lads who
   perished in the struggle and will remind passers-by that the Old Boys of this School were
   not wanting in the hour of crisis.

    “Yonder they lie, dead but not discontent,
   That which they found to do has had accomplishment.”

   The pupils at home, who could not go to the fight, followed with steadfast interest
   the fortunes of their brothers, and worked and gave of their best to minister to the
   suffering and to provide comforts for the lads.

   The following amounts were raised for various War Fund:

      Scholars helped in the Harvest, Boys on the farm, Girls at fruit picking. In the
   critical year of the Nation’s food supply, 53 plots were opened out on the School Field
   and worked assiduously.
      Many Old Girls assisted in V.A.D. and other branches of service. All the Masters
   of military age, 12 out of 14, served their country. The Teachers who remained, assisted
   by Temporary Staff, worked with right good will and great cheerfulness and brought the
   Ship of School through storm and tumult into safe waters.
      To have been in charge of the School since its inception, to have had the constant
   loyalty of my fellow colleagues on the Staff, and to have seen the splendid response of
   the Old Scholars in such a long-drawn tragedy of the Nation’s need, will be to me ever
   a source of unfailing pride and gratitude.

   Note.-The Headmaster is very anxious that no name of an Old Boy who has served with
      the Forces shall be omitted. He has taken every pains to find out which Boys have
      served. If any have been overlooked he would be glad to know, as it is likely that
      a supplementary sheet will be printed in the same style as the rest of the Book. This
      can then be added to the Record.

Page 38

   By the private generosity of the Governors
   of the School, a copy of this “Record” is
   presented to each Master and Old Boy
   who served, and also to the relatives 
   of Old Boys who fell in the War.
