In Memoriam

 

DAVIES-In loving memory of our dearly loved
youngest son, Jenkin Stanley (Stan), who laid his
loble (sic) young life on the altar of Australia's
honour, October 25, 1916, at Flers Wood;
beloved brother of S S Major E F Davies and
Private W. R. Davies (on active service abroad).
Our beloved boy.
We do not ask our cross to understand,
Our way to see:
Better in darkness just to feel Thy hand
And follow Thee.
-(Inserted by his sorrowing parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Jenkin Davies, Ulupna road, Ormond, late Moonee
Ponds).
