Via Regimental Rogue.

We little thought when we said good-by
That we had parted forever and you were to die.
The grief that we felt words cannot tell,
For we could not be with you to bid farewell.
You nobly answered your duty’s call,
You gave you life for one and all,
But the unknown grave is the bitterest blow,
None but an aching heart can know.


Enlisted in the 135th Batt’n. Transferred to the 18th Batt’n. February 1916. Killed at Arras, March 31st, 1918. Age 26 years.

From his bereaved Wife.

“Killed in Action” While on duty in the trenches south of AGNY, he was instantly killed by enemy shell fire.
