  Captain (Army Veterinary Corps, 10th & 11th Section)
  Survived the war
  Awards: Victory Medal, British War Medal, 1914 Star

01-May-1895 (SSHS)


Harry Bone, son of Tyne Pilot, John Bone, was born in 1882, and attended the High School from 1895 to 1897 (along with his brother, Thomas)

The school records show that he left school in 1897 to join the Pilot Service. However, by 1901 he was a pupil to an architect, and the school's wartime archive shows him as a Captain in the Army Veterinary Corps.

He actually joined the Army Veterinary Corps in around 1905, was promoted to Lieutenant in 1907. He was serving in Potchefstroom, South Africa, in 1911, and the following year was promoted to Captain, later to be promoted to Major.

He is believed to have survived the war, and after the war was serving in the veterinary department of the Egyptian Army, in Khartoum.
