  • I am a teacher and Old Boy of Hastings Boys' High School. I have done research on all the young men who attended HBHS (then Hastings District High School), who died in WW1. Francis was an Old Boy. I have found our quite a bit about these men but I am missing Francis Martins date of birth. I (we, the school) would appreciate anyone being able to inform me of his date of birth and any other information. I can be contacted at
