East London College Roll of Honour

East London's Roll of Honour.

The roll of honour includes the names of all 73 members of the East London College Community who died during the war. As well as their date of death, the roll of honour includes biographical information such as, where they lived and what subjects they studied. For some of those who died there are even testimonials given by fellow students. The record of Walter William Busby is particularly informative. Busby was Captain of the 13th Essex Regiment when he died on November 13th 1916. The record describes how Busby grew up in East Ham and was a Scoutmaster of the 2nd West Ham Troupe of Boy Scouts.
