A commemoration will take place today at Bradford Grammar School to honour the first pupil of the school to lose his life in the First World War.
Exactly 100 years since his death, Jonathan Edward Knowles will be remembered with a cross and poppy being placed at the school's War Memorial. The event will be attended by The Lord Mayor, Cllr Mike Gibbons, and Lady Mayoress, Mrs Elizabeth Sharp, and led by the Very Reverend Jerry Lepine.
Knowles attended Bradford Grammar School between 1899 and 1901 before joining the Army. He was part of the British Expeditionary Force which landed at Boulogne on Friday 14 August 1914 and advanced into Belgium; into the path of the advancing German 1st Army.
