Bishop’s Remembers: War records project
Bishop’s Remembers is a collection of the histories of Bishop’s students and alumni who died in service. The lives of those who served and sacrificed are linked together by their common alma mater.
This collection is a special tribute to those war heroes who, at one time or another, called Bishop’s home.
