"The school had a good reputation scholastically but the food was awful, and wartime rationing did not help. Several of us fainted on the station platform under freezing conditions at the end of the 1917 winter term; we had had only porridge for breakfast and even that was burnt."

In summary, the Fund's objectives are:

  • Supporting the advancement and education of young people by the provision of grants in support of Arctic expeditions.
  • Assisting Her Majesty's Constabulary with grants towards the cost of further education and training aimed at enhancing their effectiveness in the community.

This site provides:

  • A brief and full resume of Colonel Croft
