Ronald Coulson was born on 23 June 1908 and attended the School between September 1920 and April 1924.
He left school to take up a position as a Clerk in an Accountants Office. He later served in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve as a Sergeant in 50 Squadron during World War II.
Ronald died on 11 April 1943, aged 35, and is remembered on the Runnymede Memorial overlooking the River Thames. The Air Forces Memorial commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves.
His name is also recorded on the Grammar School’s War Honours Board — alongside the names of all of the Grammar School’s alumni to die in the First and Second World Wars.
