KILLED IN ACTION

Yes, I am proud; I shall not weep, my son - Boy of the high, brave spirit, who lies slain, Blent with the earth-grown hallowed for the stain Of thy young life-blood. Boy, who on my breast Has lain, so small, so dear, in infant rest; Whose tiny, clinging hands and nestling head Seemed God and life to me - dear son, now dead, Son of the strong young frame, the fearless heart, Vibrant with life and thought, the coming man, Shadowed in graver mood, the finished plan. My mother love foresaw and knew content. And when, all youthful fire and courage blent, You said good-bye, I smiled (Oh, God! that day Fear clutched my heart); I would not have you stay. Boy! you have died as we would have you die. Yes, I am proud, my son; I shall not weep, But, ah! within the hours of broken sleep I see your dear, loved form, your eyes, your hair, And clench my arms to clasp and hold you there; Then wake and know the glory you have won. Yes, I am proud, indeed, but - Son, oh Son! -KATHLEEN ERSOM (New Zealand). 6744

One year has passed since that sad day,
When one we loved was called away,
God took him home, it was His will,
Forget him, No, we never will.
His King and country called him,
The call was not in vain,
Upon the roll of honour
You will find our Hero's name;
Nothing to us can ever repay
The sacrifice he made that day,
So dearly loved, so sadly missed.
Greater love hath no man than this,
That a man lay down his life for his friends. 678

This bitterness of grief;

And now he rests in peace.

The chief mourners were his two brothers, Charlie and Frank, sisters Florence and Mabel, brothers-in-law McNEIL, W. WATTS, and H.E. PERFECT, and his nieces, Doris, Mabel and Stella. The pall-bearers were Privates H.H. EATON, T. TURNBULL, B. PENN, L. TRESSIE, G. ROBERTS, and H. BAXTER. A most impressive service was conducted at the graveside by the Rev. W. TURNBULL.

IN MEMORIAM

WHITAKER. – In ever-loving memory of our darling baby, Charles William WHITAKER, who died at Merrivale, on the 26th June, 1917.
Inserted by his sorrowing Mother and Father.
A lonely year since that sad day,
When all we loved was called away,
His cheery smile and loving care,
Brightened life's pathuay everywhere.
(Note: Should read 'pathway')
God had called away our darling,
Placed our bud amongst His flowers,
Taken back the one He lent us,
To a better home than ours. 3290
