In the weeks leading up to 11 November 2018 we will be remembering the 40 Harper Adams students known to us who lost their lives in the service of their country during the First World War.
Many of these men died before they had the chance to marry or have children and may now have no family to remember them. So it falls to us, as their family at Harper Adams to remember them.
Our war memorials are located in the Haydock Room in on the first floor of Main Building. This room was the first College library. After further research, some additions and corrections were made in 2014. C N Jones was corrected to T C Nicholls-Jones.
Many other Harper Adams alumni served in and survived the First World War, amongst them K F Ware, who was listed amongst the dead on our earliest memorial, but died much later in the 1960s as we learnt recently. A few returned to resume their studies at Harper Adams, along with other service men who retrained for peacetime careers in agriculture after the war.
