To date we know of 3,103 former pupils of Dulwich College who served in the Great War. Of these 534 died. Dulwich College was founded by Edward Alleyn in 1619 and its pupils are called Alleynians. This website is a tribute to these men. Each Old Alleynian (O.A.) has been given a profile page which follows his life from his home, through school to his service in the Great War. So far, the website has concentrated on those who served and died but it is planned that we will also add details of those who came home. Of the 3,103 we know of:
- 3,082 served in H. M. forces
- 10 fought for Belgium
- 7 fought for France
- 3 for the United States of America
- 1 for Germany.
We are still adding material to this website, so please do get in touch if you can help, or indeed if you spot any errors. Recently we added the First Supplementary List of Old Alleynians serving in 1915. This list contains 331 names. For those listed who subsequently died we will be linking the document to their pages.
We hope you find this website interesting.
