IN MEMORIAM (On Active Service) SAXON.-In loving memory of our dear sons and brothers, Ptse Bertie Henry Saxon, died of wounds on 6th October, 1918, in France and Joseph Stanley Saxon, killed in action, August 5th, 1916, in France. Duty nobly done Far, far away, our loved ones sleeping, And wide oceans roll between ; Tho' our eyes are dimmed with weeping, We will keep their memories green. Though their dear dead forms are lying Far away 'neath foreign soil, Around their graves soft winds are sighing, Their precious souls are safe with God. Others may in time forget them,But their ain folk never will ; We will mourn them and regret them, Their memories will be with as still. Inserted by their sorrowing parents, John and Isabella Saxon, brothers John, Thomas (returned), William (returned), Ernest, and sisters Mrs J. Wells, Mrs E. Stevens, Mrs A. V. Riddle, Grace and Jean.
