A LECTURE to mark Remembrance Day will take place tomorrow.

The ‘We Will Remember Them’ lecture is at Portsmouth Grammar School and will reflect on the impact the First World War had on independent schools.

Almost 1,000 former PGS pupils were known to be serving in every armed service by 1916.

Of the five teachers who served, two did not return and four sets of brothers were among the dead.

Sir Anthony Seldon, a political historian and commentator on British political leadership, will be a guest speaker.

The lecture is at 7.30pm.
