Old Millhillian, Illtyd David Allan, left his Mill Hill Cufflinks to his grandson Edward David. Edward, who has been in possession of the cufflinks for more than 50 years recently came across them after misplacing them and kindly sent us a picture of the cufflinks and information of his grandfather who was a proud OM.
Illtyd was one of 35 boys who joined the School in the autumn term of 1902; he left in July 1905. During his time at Mill Hill he was a member of the Upper Fifth and a Prefect; he played in the 2nd XV and 2nd Hockey XI.
Illtyd David Allan died in 1940 at 50 years of age. He was in the First World War at the front and miraculously survived injuries and won the MC.
