One in five Old Etonians who served in WWI lost their lives: many of the young men seen here accepting new colours from King George V in the grounds of Windsor Castle would have lost fathers or older brothers. The cadets were members of the Eton College Officers' Training Corps and many would go on to serve in WWII.
