In Memoriam


PAWLEY.-In loving memory of our dear son and
brother, Arthur James, who died 20th June, on
board hospital ship Gascon, from wounds received
in Gallipoli, and buried at sea, aged 22 years.
Kind was the son we loved and lost,
Gentle, thoughtful, and tender;
When in the days I loved him most     
Death came and wrenched us asunder.
We loved him in life, he is dear to us still:
But in grief we must bend to God's holy will.
Our sorrow is great, our loss hard to bear,
But angels will guard our dear Arthur with care.
-(Inserted by his sorrowing parents and brothers
Bert, on active service, and Fred.)

Thoughts of our Arthur are always dear.
