Watford Field School Football Team 1905/6

I recently acquired this printed post card showing the Watford Field School Football Team taken by Harry Robert Cull, photographer, of St Albans Road, Watford, and published by the Acme Tone Engraving Co. Ltd., Watford, photo engravers & printers. The men at the back are probably teachers in the school and perhaps the one in the centre is the headmaster Walter John Toppin.

The date would suggest that many of the pupils later fought in the First World War. It would be wonderful if some of them could be identified. It would also be interesting to know if the school has a record of former pupils who gave their lives in the conflict.
