September 19th 1914

In the ‘Times’ today we note the death in action of one of our Old Boys.

R Pringle

Lieut. Robert Pringle (Queen’s Royal West Surrey Regiment).

We regret to announce the death of Robert Pringle. He had been in the Army since 1907 and was one of the first Old Dragons into battle, seeing action at Mons. We understand that he died of wounds suffered in the battle going on near the River Aisne on September 15th.

Robert was a boarder with us for just one year (1895-96) and went on to Winchester via St. Cuthbert’s, Malvern. He was married in April 1913 and leaves a wife and daughter, to whom we send our condolences.
