Order of Service for Dedication of PGS WW I Memorial 1924 [Arthur Whitaker]
I had a blazer which had belonged to one of our members (Alec Weston) who died last year. The Blazer really is a one off because it has the school crest sewn on the top pocket with the letters OBA (Old Boys Association) under the crest. This was, of course, the insignia used by the group of Old Boys shortly after the St. Helens Road site was established in 1924, and it probably is one of a very few still in existence.(if any) There was another suprise with the blazer when I found in the pocket a copy of the service which was used at the old school for the unveiling and dedication of the war memorial. This is also dated 1924. It really is a piece of school history and it truly belongs in the school archives now held by the Knowsley Library authorities.I will be speaking to their archivist about this.
