"100 years on from the outbreak of that terrible war, I want to create a visible memorial to the sacrifice and suffering of the 147 Old Brightonians who never returned to this place. In so doing, I hope we will provide every pupil here with a daily reminder of how very lucky we are.
To that end, the College is commissioning a sculpture of a Brighton College boy, based on a photograph of 1914. I imagine him leaving school at the end of his sixth form years, ready for the world beyond. Never to return. Beneath the sculpture will be the simple words: He Left This Place Never to Return. Be Grateful.
I hope that you can help us to realise our hopes for this project by ‘sponsoring’ one of the 147 names. I shall certainly be doing so."
Head Master Richard Cairns
The OB cricket team are looking for players to play in a charity cricket match for the Brighton College chaplain, Father Robert's charity Extra Cover.
Extra Cover was set up in the wake of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami and aims to provide basic essentials such as food, clothing and clean water to twenty-four jungle school in the south of Sri Lanka.

A warm welcome to our newest members of the Old Brightonians; our leavers of 2015.
On Thursday 25th June we celebrated at the College with a service for our leavers, and after the traditional leavers photographs on the lawn the College then celebrated with a Graduation Ceremony for Upper 6th Leavers.
James Chisholm secured over a third of the vote for this year's World Rugby U20 Championship Player of the Tournament. His performance throughout the tounament so far has been awesome, particularly in the semi-final against South Africa earlier this week.
Ollie Phillips, Old Brightonian, rugby player and adventurer has been challenged to form a team to take on the arduous Endure 6 Skeleton Coast Expedition in November 2015 and trek 150km unsupported across the Namib desert to the Skeleton Coast, in support of The Endure Foundation.
Harlequins and former England centre Jordan has retired at the age of 27 because of a hip injury. He won two international caps in 2012, came through the Quins academy and made 181 appearances.
The Cyril Gray tournament is a scratch foursomes School team event for over-50s with 32 schools playing and 6 players making up each team. Owing to there being a good chance of 36 holes having to be played on one day, it is desirable to have a squad of players. This year we went into the main event with a group of seven players, ably supported by Watson Failes who lives nearby and was able to play if needed. Watson turns out to be our secret weapon for the Super Seniors event on Saturday 27th June which requires two golfers with a combined age of 140, with both being over 65.
The annual cricket game between the college and the Old Brightonians was played at the Home Ground on a sunny afternoon 23 June.
The Old Brightonians welcomed into their ranks the recent leavers Ed Coombs (Ry. 2012-14), Ned Wright (Le. 2009-14), Ed Catt (Du. 1999-2014) and Josh Hayward (Ha. 2012-14).
1st Round Away to Harrow Wanderers.
The Old Brightonians travelled to Harrow School for the 1st round of the Cricketer Cup. We have not played at home for several seasons now, but that is the luck of the draw. We have a long history of cricket against Harrow both at school level and in the OB's Cup. Our last two visits have been unsuccessful against The Wanderers. One sticks out in my mind in particular when we lost to them in the semi-finals of the competition back in the early noughties, the furthest we have reached in the Cup since we won the competition back in the 60's.
If you are planning a visit to Brighton and would like a tour of the College and your old House, it is much better to contact us first so that we can be prepared for your arrival and have the time to show you around properly.
We are always delighted to see OBs back at the College but it can be disappointing for both you and us if we cannot allocate enough time to your visit due to other commitments. These days we are governed by strict health and safety laws, safeguarding and security measures which mean that visitors have to be accompanied around the campus.
These rules apply as much in the holidays as in term time as the College has various commercial lettings involving large numbers of children. It is a frustrating situation for all of us when you are not able to see all that you want to, and we would appreciate your consideration in helping us make it easier for you.
Please telephone Angelina in the OB office to let us know when you would like to visit on 01273 704 226.
These pages are intended as a resource for OBs wishing to keep in contact with each other and the latest developments at the College. Even though you have finished your education at Brighton College, you are of course a member of the Old Brightonians for life. You can update your details direct in our Members' Area, search for school friends and book tickets to OB events.
We are always keen to hear your news and stories, comments and suggestions, so please stay in touch. Please contact us at email@example.com.
The Development and Alumni Relations Office's primary role is to support the Head Master and Governors in realising the long-term plans of the school, by raising non-fee income, and by building a network of strong relationships among parents, staff, Old Brightonians and other friends and supporters.
