Toowoomba Grammar School Old Boys' Commemorative Website
Since 1885, Old Boys of Toowoomba Grammar School have served their country in Sudan, China, South Africa, Europe, Korea, Malaya, South Vietnam, East Timor and the United Nations Organisation Forces. This website honors those who paid the supreme sacrifice: two Old Boys serving their country in the Boer War; sixty two during World War One; one hundred and twenty-two during World War Two; Private Douglas McEwen in Korea; Captain Kenneth Bade, during the Vietnam campaign; and Private Tim Aplin in Afghanistan.
We must remind ourselves that no one who fought in World War One is still alive and very few are alive from World War Two. It is important that the younger generation do not forget the horrific events of both Wars. In these uncertain times, the legacy of war is very much alive. The website is an important contribution to the commemoration of Toowoomba Grammar School Old Boys. ‘Lest We Forget’.
We wish to acknowledge support for this project by the Queensland Anzac Centenary Spirit of Service Grants Program.
