Cambridgeshire Schools celebrated Empire Day from around 1907 and the usual date was May 24th. Children saluted the flag and sang ” The Flag of Britain.” They wewre given a half day’s holiday once the vicar had visited the school and taken a service. Headteacher Arthur Samuels of the Mixed School 7 to 13 years is on the right. His two children are at the front of the photograph. Gewen Samuels, the little girl gave me this photograph.
