Roll of Honour (WW2)

Given below are brief biographies of the Emmanuel men known, or thought, to have been killed in the Second World War or shortly afterwards (men who died in the year or so following the end of the War were considered by the College to be war casualties, if they were still on active service).

Details of their College career and, as far as is known, their military service have been given. If visitors to this site have any additional information about any of the individuals named, could they please contact the College Archivist at archives@emma.cam.ac.uk.

Emmanuel College has two memorials to the Fallen of the Second World War. In 1951 it commissioned, for the Chapel, a silver altar cross to match the two altar candlesticks given to Emmanuel in the mid-eighteenth century. The other memorial is an illuminated parchment Book of Remembrance containing the names of the College dead of both world wars. As a result of the difficulty of obtaining reliable information about Emmanuel casualties in the Second World War, there are some inaccuracies in the Remembrance Book; three men were probably included in error and, conversely, there were several omissions. These mistakes have been rectified in the following roll of honour.

These biographies have been compiled by Philip Brown (1964).
