Two old Shirburnians were awarded the Victoria Cross for their acts of valour in the Great War and almost a hundred were recipients of the recently instituted Military Cross. However 'Vivat Shirburnia' is not just about the many brave deeds of OS in the First World War. The impact on the school is explored, as well as the extraordinary range of service by former Sherborne pupils during the war and its aftermath.
