A Summer Term in an English Public School
by Hermann Sommermeier
A reprint of a fascinating and detailed description of what Chigwell School was like on the eve of the First World War, written (in English) by a German teacher, Hermann Sommermeier, and  published in Germany in 1914. Sommermeier taught at Chigwell in 1913 and died fighting for Germany in the First World War. His poignant story, which probably provided the inspiration for part of James Hilton’s ‘Goodbye, Mr. Chips’, is related in a meticulously-researched introduction by Nicholas Dixon (OC).
