Central Technical School Gloucester War Memorial
The memorial, a wooden plaque, resides in the Saintbridge Sports Centre, home of Old Centralian's RFC. The Old Centralian's RFC have a memorial dinner every year on or around the 11th November.
It was previously located in the entrance foyer of Central Technology College, Cotteswold Rd. Gloucester, England. It commemorates former pupils of the Central Technical School for Boys, who died during the Second World War.
Central Technical School for Boys was originally based in Derby Rd., Gloucester. In 1956 or 1957 the school moved to the new building in Cotteswold Rd. At a later date it became first Saintbridge School, then Central Technology College, and finally Gloucester Academy.
