This handbill lists the top students from various regions of Ontario. Of the 31 boys listed on the scholarship hand bill, 8 registered for the army. That means almost 1 in 4 of the boys enlisted. Imagine if a quarter of the boys you had gone to high school with left to fight in a war. Look through their attestation papers to see where these boys were from and when they joined up.
