None of this project would have been possible without the diligence and farsightedness of McCulloch Christison OA (1893-1898), who not only wrote to all the families of the Fallen in the 1920s, but also kept the letters of reply. Those letters and his Dulwich College War Record 1914-1919 form the backbone of what we know about these men today.


We are also grateful for further material that has been provided by Ian McInnes, Brian Green, Patrick Darby OA and the Dulwich Society.


Our thanks also go out to Dr. David Cooper, for his help with the digitisation of the 1906 map of the Dulwich Estate.


Furthermore, we are grateful for the support of the Alleyn Club, The John Horseman Trust and Morton and Eden Ltd (especially James Morton and David Kirk) for making this project possible.
