- 1908 - 2019
A collection of material which focuses on Old Oakhamians and their military careers. The bulk of the collection focuses on the two World Wars and research of the OOs who sadly fell.
The strongest part of this sub-fonds is the material relating to the First World War. It contains research on many Old Oakhamians and whole OO families who fought during the conflict such as the Humfreys and the Scotts. Much of the material is paper research but there are some original photographic material included.
WWS/2 focuses on the Second World War. Most of the collection looks at Oakham between 1939 and 1945 or the commemorations that have subsequently occurred.
