The New Beacon has a rich military history. 37 and 78 Old Beaconians were killed in the First and Second World Wars respectively. On this day of Remembrance and always, we will remember them. Lest we forget.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
