Cecil George Sandbrook Rawlings, Lance-Corporal, 12th County of London (Rangers), killed in action on February 15th, 1915, aged 20

Cecil began his education in the Godolphin Kindergarten, and I was much touched to hear that his lasy Kindergaten report still hangs over his bed at home. In it I remarked: “I Hope I shall always hear good things of Cecil, who has been a good boy at School.” His Captain has written very good things of him to his parents, for he says: “He always did his work so calmly and efficiently, and at the same time he was a great favourite with the whole platoon.” Our deepest sympathy is with his parents.
