Mrs Mary Milner, William's mother, died in , as did his twenty-two-year-old brother Harry who died at home in Droitwich. Florence, his older sister died in Leaving five - four siblings and their father - to mourn William's death. The battalion were part of an Allied contingent sent to help the Italians in the Trentino where it was feared the Austrians were getting the upper hand.
Milner was killed on 11 October on the Asiago Plateau during a raid on the Austrian trenches. Italy was a completely different battle front from the flat lands of France and Flanders, and from the desert heat of Palestine and Mesopotamia. It was rugged, mountainous and inhospitable and the cemetery where Milner is buried is rarely accessible between November and April due to deep snow.
For all its inhospitableness it would appear that Barenthal was one of the very first cemeteries to be built. Mr W Milner must have been asked for his choice of inscription in Next-of-kin don't seem to have been asked for this information until the War Graves Commission were ready to build the cemetery as I've seen inscriptions that refer to three, five and even eight years having passed since the soldier died. There is more to this inscription than meets the eye. What sounds like a simple injunction to never disturb Jones' body is in fact a famous inscription - if you know your American literature.
Natty Bumppo, a white boy raised by Indians, is a 'good' white man, a frontiersman who helps people in trouble. At the end of 'The Prairie' , Bumppo dies in the fulness of time and the Indians pay him this tribute: "A valiant, a just, and a wise warrior has gone on the path, which will lead him to the blessed grounds of his people. By choosing this inscription, Evan Jones' father, William Jones, associated his son with "a valiant, a just, and a wise warrior". Jones served with the first Battalion the King's Shropshire Light Infantry and was killed in action on 8 October when the battalion attacked at 5.
The battalion war diary reported a 'great numbers of prisoners soon began to come back, which meant attack was going well'. The attack did go well but nevertheless the battalion suffered over casualties killed and wounded. However, William Jones had no opportunity to choose an inscription for his younger son because Albert's body was never found.
He is commemorated on the Vis-en-Artois memorial to the missing. Evan and Albert were two of his nine children all of whom worked with him on the farm. His wife, Mary died in , his daughter Sarah in and two of his sons in He was educated at Bedford School, had only just joined his squadron, and had been offered an instructorship in England, but made special application for active service abroad.
After qualifying as a pilot he went to France to serve with Squadron. The squadron was based in Dunkirk and flying DH9s on daylight bombing raids. Herbert was killed whilst practicing formation flying; his plane collided in mid-air with another machine and he and his observer were both killed.
Herbert's father chose his inscription, a very masculine tribute from a father to a son but one of total admiration and approval. The first two lines come from 'Hail and Farewell' by the popular poet John Oxenham. They died that we might live,- Hail! That we might live they died,- Hail! Eternal honour give,- Hail! The second two lines of the inscription are Mr Killick's own words and reflect a popular sentiment of the time: that those who lived on had an obligation to the dead to look after the world and make it a better place, one where such a terrible event would never happen again, a world that would be worthy of the dead.
It is a relevant point today, remembrance itself is not enough. If the dead did leave the future in trust to us, that should be the subtext of 'all remembrance mantras - 'Lest we forget' the responsibility they hoped we would assume. His body was not discovered until December when it was found with five other bodies at map reference 62c. There was no cross on the grave so it hadn't been previously registered. The body was identified by "Clothing, boots, numerals and two paper discs". The form asks "Were any effects forwarded to base?
Gold cased watch guaranteed 20 years. Discs fell to powder after being exposed. See covering letter. This refers to the fact that French and Belgian farmers were paid for each body they discovered to discourage them from failing to report it and just ploughing it back in to the ground. In David Jones was assisting his parents in the business. By the time his body was discovered his father was dead. He immediately took a commission in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and after training went to France in June He was promoted captain that September.
In November he was awarded a Military Cross for carrying out "a daring raid against the enemy with great courage and determination". In November he returned to England for six months home duty before returning to France in May He was killed six months later by a shell whilst leading his Company into action on 28 September Smith's inscription, chosen by his father, George Smith Master of Dulwich College, comes from Robert Browning's poem Rabbi Ben Ezra , a philosophical poem in which Age addresses Youth and tells it, "Grow old along with me the best is yet to be".
This is because in Age we acquire the wisdom and insight that Youth, too concerned with living in the moment, doesn't have. However, these are the very qualities that twenty-two-year-old Smith was admired for. As his Colonel wrote to his parents: "Though young in years, he had an old head, with much discretion. I could trust any duty to him knowing that it would be well and faithfully carried out".
The poem holds that our life on earth is but one step on the journey of our soul, which will continue after death. To his parents, George Smith was setting out "Once more on my adventure brave and new". A volunteer, he joined up as a private and went to France in November A year later he received a commission in the 9th Battalion Royal Fusiliers. He was killed on 8 August in the capture of the village of Sailly-Laurette on the opening day of the Battle of Amiens.
It is based on a Hindu mantra from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, a treatise on the soul composed sometime around the year BC. Lead us from the unreal to the real. Lead us from the darkness to the light. Lead us from death to immortality. It is a very unusual inscription from a very unusual source. The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad does not appear to have been well known in Britain. It had been translated into English in but I can't see that either the book or the mantra were widely known so it would be interesting to know how Mr and Mrs Hill came across it.
This is such a heartbreaking inscription. I've neither heard of Chute-Erson before nor ever seen this poem. It's the kind of sentimental verse that the twentieth century rejected but it's the type that must have expressed many a mother's feelings: 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! I would not have you stay. Yes, I am proud, my son, I shall not weep, But, oh!
Yes, I am proud, indeed, but - Son, oh, Son! Those three words - 'Son oh son'. For all that the mother has tried to convince herself that she's proud that her son has died 'as we would have you die', and that she is determined that she 'shall not weep', remembering him as a baby and and 'on the verge of manhood' is actually too much for her. William Stephen was 18 when he was killed in action on the day the 51st Highland Division took Marfaux with very heavy casualties.
William London's father chose his inscription. I can only imagine that he is telling his son that his mother and father have been trying to 'call' him through a spiritualist medium. And I can only imagine that they have not had any answer. It's rather a haunting inscription. Belief in spiritualism, the belief that it was possible to make contact with the dead beyond the grave, was very popular after the First World War.
There were numerous charlatans out there but some people genuinely believed that they were speaking to their dead relations. And not everyone who believed was a gullible innocent. Sir Oliver Lodge, a British physicist who played a key part in the development of radio, firmly believed that he was in touch with his son Raymond who had been killed in action on 14 September William London was the younger of his parents' two children.
He served with the 2nd Battalion Welsh Regiment and was killed in action on 20 July There is a gap in the battalion war diary between the end of June and the beginning of November so it's not possible to tell how he might have died. It comes from Tennyson's poem 'Merlin and the Gleam' where the gleam is a glimmer of the holy grail, that intangible quality that man should attempt to follow in his life: Not of the sunlight, Not of the moonlight, Not of the starlight!
This will have been the source of the inscription but it could have been a second-hand source. The song won and became a YMCA anthem, which is still sung today. Based on Tennyson's poem the song encourages young people to follow the gleam: To knights in the days of old, Keeping watch on the mountain height, Came a vision of Holy Grail And a voice through the waiting night.
He finished his flying training and was just about to be sent to France when he had a head-on collision in the air and was killed. His father, the Revd Horace E Bray chose his inscription. His mother had died when his sister was born. Bray's patriotic poetry was included in several Canadian anthologies. This plea for peace was written by Robert Burns in , more than a hundred years before David Herkes repeated it on his son's headstone. Burns' poem, 'On the Seas and Far Away' expresses a parents' yearning for peace so that their sailor son's life might be saved: Bullets, spare my only joy!
Bullets, spare my darling boy! Fate, do with me what you may - Spare but him that's far away. Robert Herkes was 18 when he died of wounds in a base hospital in France. At one time this would have meant that the soldier had his parents' signed permission to be serving abroad, but by this stage of the war more and more eighteen-year-olds were being sent to the front without this.
Although Herkes served with the London Regiment he was born and brought up in Leith, Scotland where his father was a dock porter. From the census it would appear that his mother was dead and that his grandmother, Isabella Herkes, was looking after the family of two children. In this later poem he says: Peace, thy olive wand extend, And bid wild war his ravage end, Man with brother man to meet, And as a brother kindly greet:. This inscription takes us far away from Western Europe to southern Persia, now Iran, where the British had formed the South Persia Rifles in an attempt to counter German influence among the region's tribes.
There was much local hostility to the British and the loyalty of many members of the Rifles had became uncertain. In June the Rifles' garrison at Abadeh mutinied and joined the enemy, laying siege to the town. A small Indian Army detachment had recently joined the fortress to take control of the supplies and ammunition in case of just such an eventuality.
On 2 July the enemy succeeded in breaking the bank of the irrigation channel, diverting the water so that it flowed directly towards the mud walls of the garrison fortress. Gwynne-Griffiths went out under heavy fire to mend the breach and was killed. The breach was eventually mended but Abadeh was not relieved until the 17 July. On 2 August a detachment of troops left Abadeh taking Gwynne-Griffiths body with them back to Shiraz, a journey of miles in the scorching heat. You must be thinking what I'm thinking. How did they keep Gwynne-Griffith's body from being unspeakable.
I don't know but they didn't want it left among the hostile local people. We wouldn't have known about this if his mother hadn't told us via his inscription. His comrades' actions must have brought her great comfort. The battalion diary exists and shows that it was out of the line for most of June It doesn't mention suffering any casualties but it does mention that many of the men had 'three-day fever' and some of them had Spanish Flu and were very ill.
Chetkovich died in Pernes, a large Casualty Clearing Station centre two years to the day after he had volunteered. His father, who still lived in Boan Uskosi, chose his inscription, highlighting the seemingly strange fact that his Serbian son should die in Belgium fighting in the British Army.
Serbia and Britain were therefore on the same side, both fighting Austria-Hungary and her ally Germany. Mrs Kate Scurlock had no misgivings about the cause for which her son had died, unlike yesterday's mother who was obviously deeply against war. It's strange to think how many people passionately believed that their menfolk had died for abstract concepts like 'justice, freedom and for right' when that's not how most people think today.
Yet how things are perceived is how people believe they are - and it's good to think sometimes of how people in a hundred years time might judge our present-day perceptions. Frederick Scurlock was born in Pembroke Dock where his father was a fitter in the dockyard. He worked as a clerk in a timber yard in Haverfordwest until he was called up. Scurlock served with "C" Bty. Leslie Rose died of meningitis whilst a German prisoner of war, his body later exhumed and buried in Valenciennes St Roch Communal Cemetery.
The War Graves Commission records this exhumation and the record includes the evidence of identity. This says, "Plate on coffin". I'm pretty sure that British soldiers were normally buried in ground sheets not coffins yet this is the second time I've come across the mention of the plate on a coffin and that too was of a soldier buried by the Germans. At this time the Germans were so short of some raw materials that shoes and boots were being made out of vegetable matter. Yet they were burying soldiers, including enemy soldiers, in coffins with coffin plates. Rose's mother chose his inscription.
It's a stern rebuke to everyone, she is not blaming the other side she's saying that it takes two to quarrel - "war cannot be on one side". She then follows this statement up with the reference to a passage in Deuteronomy. She's identified it as Deuteronomy but most people would say And what is the quote"? George Helliwell Harding was the Red Baron's 73rd victim. He had only been with 79 Squadron since 2 March when he became von Richthofen's third kill of the day.
Harding was attacking a German fighter when von Richthofen came from behind and shot him down. Harding's plane caught fire and broke up in the air. Two years later, Harding's sister, Ruth, an actress, was in France entertaining American troops. She wanted to identify her brother's grave - the implication being that he had been buried as an unknown airman. She identified a grave and insisted on the body being exhumed for her to identify the remains. It must have been indescribably gruesome. Her brother would have been horribly burnt and had been in the ground for a year.
Just under a month later Manfred von Richthofen was killed. Harding was an American citizen from South Minneapolis, Minnesota. After America's entry into the war he tried to enlist in the American army but so many Americans were volunteering that he became impatient at the delay and crossed the border into Canada to enlist in the Flying Corps. He arrived in England in August and after further training, he went to France on 2 March. Twenty-five days later he was dead.
His father, Mr GF Harding, chose his inscription from Algernon Swinburne's poem 'The Halt Before Rome': Republican Rome, for whom the soldiers in the poem are fighting: She, without shelter or station, She, beyond limit or bar, Urges to slumberless speed Armies that famish, that bleed, Sowing their lives for her seed, That their dust may rebuild her a nation, That their souls may relight her a star. There's no indication as to why he volunteered, it could have been the sinking of the Lusitania on 7 May in which so many American citizens died, or perhaps the fact that there's a Star of David on his headstone.
This sign of his Jewish faith might have been a significant factor. Anti-semitism was rife in certain parts of Germany and within certain sections of German society. His family could have been refugees. Aaron who died at 30 CCS as the result of an accident while driving Ford Ambulance on duty on the Death resulted on Born in Clapton, London in the first quarter of and educated at Hackney Downs School, Ernest Dunn was just 19 when, according to his medal index card, he went to France in May He was killed the following month.
His parents' only child; his father had died in At the time of his death he was attached to the Machine Gun Corps. The Hackney Downs School memorial site , records that Dunn was killed by a shell. Originally buried where he died, Dunn's body was exhumed and reburied at Orchard Dump Cemetery in March The site of the cemetery was donated to the War Graves Commission by the widow of a Captain in the French 72nd Infantry killed in action in August Mrs Alice Whelan had thirteen children of whom nine survived to adulthood.
Widowed before she and her one daughter described their occupations as ironers. Thomas was her eldest child. She says of him in the War Graves Commission records that he had had 15 years military service. It is likely that this service had come to the end before the war and that he rejoined on the outbreak.
He died of wounds in the hospital centre of St Sever on 1 July , the first day of the Battle of the Somme. Thomas was 'the first to fall'. Two years later James Whelan, sixteen years younger than his older brother, died of wounds close to the front line on 26 June Eight of my sons Answered the call You, dear Jim, were the second To fall - sleep on.
Stanley Jenkin's inscription comes from Elizabeth Barrett Browning's beautiful, passionate love poem 'How do I love thee? Let me count the ways'. It was signed for by his father. The battalion was sent first to a quiet part of the line to acclimatise themselves to the trenches before being sent into the front line at Givenchy on 17 February. The next day the British artillery bombarded the German trenches from 8 to 11 pm.
The war diary recorded that the enemy's retaliation was 'moderate' and that one soldier was killed. The next day, the 19th, is described as "Very quiet - nothing unusual happened. In civilian life Jenkins had been an engine driver in a colliery in Ogmore Vale, Glamorganshire. In he was living in Ogmore with his grandmother, Anne Davies, without his parents, as he had been aged 7 in On his attestation form he named his grandmother as his next of kin and left his money to her in his will.
However, by she was dead and it was his parents, Evan and Esther Jenkins of Brodawel, Twyn, Garnant, Carmarthenshire, who received his medals, next-of-kin memorial plaque and scroll. To do this they had to fill in Army Form W. This revealed that all his grandparents were dead and that he had no brothers or sisters.
He was 52 years of age. On the outbreak of war he rejoined the army and was in France by March with the rank of Temporary Lieutenant Colonel, meaning that he would hold the rank for the duration of the war. Harrison was commissioned into the Royal Field Artillery in He came from an army family. His father had served with the Madras Native Infantry and his grand-father had been a major-general in the Royal Artillery. In France he served with the 16th Division Ammunition Column and as the newspaper reported, died of pneumonia.
His wife, Beatrice, chose his inscription. It comes from Robert Louis Stevenson's Requiem, the poem that appears on his own grave in Samoa: Under the wide and starry sky Dig the grave and let me lie: Glad did I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you 'grave for me: Here he lies where he long'd to be; Home is the sailor, home from the sea, And the hunter home from the hill.
Mrs Harrison has contracted the words to read as she wanted them to read. Her husband, after a long career in the army, was lying among his fellow soldiers in the battlefields of France. When relations quoted from this hymn they usually quoted the first three words of the first verse: 'Abide with me', or the last line of the last verse: 'In life in death O Lord abide with me'. James Dick's parents have quoted from the second verse: Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou who changest not abide with me!
James Dick was a apprentice engineer in Gateshead-on-Tyne when he enlisted in the Durham Light Infantry soon after the outbreak of war. His medal card shows that he disembarked in France on 20 April He was a private. His military career shows his quality. Over the next two years he was awarded a Military Medal, promoted corporal, then acting sergeant and on 29 May he received a commission. Five months later, almost to the day, he died of wounds in one of the Casualty Clearing Stations at Proven. He is buried in Mendinghem Military Cemetery.
This was one of the humorous names the troops gave to this group of Belgian Casualty Clearing Stations, along with Bandaghem and Dozinghem. The subject of my tweets, blog and books is inscriptions. They come first and the person and their story comes afterwards. What I mean is that I don't look around for a person and then see what their inscription says, it's the other way round. This has led me along some interesting byways from very under age soldiers, men serving under false names, huge family tragedies, examples of incredible fortitude, to suicide and murder.
This inscription has led me nowhere; I could find out even less than I usually can about a soldier and certainly nothing about Lee as a musician. Yet the inscription is one of the most powerful I've come across. This much it says in the War Graves Commission Register but I can't identify him with any certainty in any census.
William AJ Lee's medal card does not indicate when he enlisted nor when he arrived in France. We know he served with the 25th Tyneside Irish Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers, that he died of wounds in hospital in Etaples on 3 May and that's it. Arthur James Lee signed for his son's eloquent inscription - he did well. The words "Don't worry" are in inverted commas, which would suggest that they are the words of the dead man and no, I don't think they mean don't worry that I'm dead because I shall now be alright. I think that brother Edward was fully conscious of the irony of his choice.
His brother had gone off to war telling them all not to worry - and look what happened. Robert Allen had gone off to war in October when he was He had been out at work since he was 14 when he was a door boy in a restaurant. Ernest J Allen was a baker in Battersea and in the family had, Jacob Buss, another baker, living with them.
Buss was a naturalised German citizen. There's no indication in the war diary when the wounds might have been received. Edward Wilfred Allen was too young to have served in the war but if you follow up Ernest J Allen, Ernest Jones Allen, he was killed in action on 25 September whilst serving as a driver with the Royal Horse Artillery. Alexander Graham, serving with the 9th Battalion Black Watch, died of gas poisoning in a hospital in Bethune.
The battalion had gone into the front line at Vermelles on 26 April The Germans launched a gas attack on the 27th but the gongs sounded the alert and the men all got their smoke helmets on in good time. Even though the gas was so dense that one could not see more than 8 to 10 feet little harm was done. However, on the 29th the Germans subjected the line to the most intense bombardment using every form of shell including gas shells and lachrymatory shells tear gas.
This time casualties were very high probably, it was concluded, because the men had been advised to remove their helmets too soon. Graham died in hospital the following day. Isabella Graham chose her youngest son's inscription. This poetic translation of the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita, was very popular, especially with Theosophists who were interested in Eastern mysticism. The passage is based on Book 2 "Thou grievest where no grief should be! I have slain a man!
I am slain! Life cannot slay. Life is not slain! Never the spirit was born; the spirit shall cease to be never; Never was time it was not; end and beginning are dreams! Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit for ever; Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems! William Larkin's sister, Edith, chose his inscription. She was his only living relation their parents having both died by She chose a line from verse 3 of the hymn 'For all the saints'. O may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold, Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old And win with them the victor's crown of gold, Alleluia!
The siblings had not had an easy life. Father was a groomsman and domestic gardener who died in Their mother was deaf and had been since she was Edith spent two years in the care of the Maidstone Poor Law Union between the ages of five and seven, and aged fourteen was living with her mother's sister. William doesn't appear in the census but by he was a grocer's assistant in Rottingdean.
William Larkin joined the 12th Battalion Sussex Regiment. The battalion were in France by March where they were heavily involved in the Somme campaign. On 8 October they relieved the 14th Battalion in the trenches at Auchonvillers. Enemy retaliated to some extent with TMs and 77 mm shells. Our trenches slightly damaged, but repaired each night. Enemy appear to have few heavy guns opposite us on this sector. John Tweddell, a stoker, fireman on the railways, embarked from Australia in October to serve with the Australian 1st Field Ambulance.
He died of wounds - two fractured lags and laceration of his eye - in the 1st Anzac Main Dressing Station, France, on 6 November His widowed mother chose his inscription and to me it has an echo of the Roman poet Catullus's farewell to his brother. By ways remote and distant waters sped, Brother, to thy sad grave-side I am come, That I may give the last gifts to the dead, Since she who now bestows and now denies Hath taken thee, hapless brother, from mine eyes. But lo! Hail and Farewell - Ave Atque Vale. Catullus had come a great distance to visit his brother's grave, to salute him and say 'for all time' good-bye'.
Mrs Tweddell sent her inscription from a great distance to say 'for all time' remembrance. It sounds very much like a quotation to me but I can't find it anywhere, only as this inscription. This is Kipling - do you recognise it?
TV Listings: Here are the feature and TV Films airing the week of July 28 - Aug. 3, 12222
If you can keep your head, trust yourself, dream, think This is Kipling's poem 'If', written in Strangely, for all its popularity, I've not come across any reference to the poem in an inscription before. Geoffrey Gidley was the second youngest of George and Annie Gidley's seven children. Some might think he was a man already because he was out at work, as a clerk in a barrister's office, by the time he was 14 in There is no individual mention of his death but the battalion war diary records that, whilst they were being relieved from the front line trenches at Missy au Bois on the 25th, they were subjected to very heavy gas shelling resulting in 9 officers and other ranks being admitted to hospital.
It seems likely that O'Rorke was one of these casualties. There's another version of it that is fairly common as a general 'In Memoriam' inscription: "There came a mist and a blinding rain and life was never the same again". It's a love poem and the quotation comes from the first verse: Alas, how easily things go wrong! A sigh too much, a kiss too long, And there follows a mist and weeping rain, And life is never the same again.
Ralph Hamilton's father signed for his inscription. They were therefore familiar with the land Byron describes: the land of cypress and myrtle of cedar and vine, 'where the flowers ever blossom, the beams ever shine The quotation has an interesting after life. The 'immorality' of his life making him unacceptable to the Abbey authorities. I haven't looked up to see how long the notices kept appearing but it was not until May that Byron got a memorial in Westminster Abbey.
Hamilton's battalion had been brought back from Palestine to meet the German offensive. They had certainly had no experience of gas but the experts sent to train them in fighting with bayonets soon found 'we had not much to learn in that line'. Hamilton was killed on 2 September The battalion successfully attacked across the Canal du Nord when 'murderous machine-gun fire opened up from the left and their rear.
In addition to this we were being subjected to very heavy fire on our left flank, which was now completely in the air, and we could actually see their gun teams working the 77's on the crest of the ridge. The Bosche had paid us the compliment of rushing up his best troops to meet our Division, and certainly the Alpini Corps were most gallant fighters. To advance unsupported was out of the question, and our casualties were by now very heavy, so there was nothing left but to withdraw to the west side of the Canal again and reorganise the remains of the companies. Christian Phillips was born in March His mother died in and his father in leaving him and his older sister and brother, Rachel and Edward, to be brought up by their mother's spinster sisters.
He rejoined his old regiment on the outbreak of war and was in France by 16 January It was a rank he held for ten days. On 10 July the battalion took part in the attack on Mametz Wood and Phillips was killed. Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, The last of life, for which the fire was made: Our times are in His hand Who saith "A whole world I planned, Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid.
Mrs Rose Ward's lovely description of the lost past comes from a poem by Frederick W Myers who is better known today as a Spiritualist. The poem, which doesn't appear to have a title, seems to describe a magical visit to the Lake District near Helvellyn, the memory of which is printed on the poet's mind: Within, without, whate'er hath been, In cosmic deeps the immortal scene Is mirrored and shall last - Live the long looks, the woodland ways. That twilight of enchanted days - The imperishable past. Alfred Ward volunteered soon after the outbreak of war and joined the 61st Field Company Royal Engineers.
His medal index card shows that he went with the regiment to France on 25 May They were based in Belgium - Hooge and Bellewaarde - until the summer of when they moved to the Somme. Ward was killed at Delville Wood where, among all the fighting, the sappers were laying on water supplies, creating tramway trenches, machine gun emplacements and shell-proof shelters. This has all the hallmarks of a brother's inscription: hearty, blokey and unemotional. And it is a brother's inscription, chosen by William Merrifield's younger brother, Leonard. Their parents were both dead - mother died in , father in and their older sister had died in William Merrifield died on 4 August The war had been over for nearly two years.
Merrifield had served since the outbreak and been in France since 24 June He was 'disembodied' on 15 February ; disembodied is a military term which indicates that Merrifield had been a territorial soldier before the war. The fact that he was disembodied in February would seem to imply that he had survived it unwounded. Yet when he dies in his home town of Newton Abbot just over a year later he is entitled to a military grave. There is no indication as to the cause of Merrifield's death but, if you died before 31 August of any cause where your war service could have been a contributory factor, you were entitled to a war grave.
I said the inscription Leonard chose for his brother was unemotional, but two things: first he chose an inscription, and paid five shillings and sixpence for it, and secondly, he acknowledges his comradeship with his brother. That doesn't come from the use of the word 'Matey' but from the 'Au revoir', the French word for 'good-bye'. Leonard served with the Devonshire Regiment and had been in France since October He was discharged 'Class Z' on 12 November Class Z meant that you were discharged to the reserve and if war broke out again you would be called up. Ada Green chose her eldest son's inscription, reflecting her own stoical acceptance of the situation.
There was nothing she could do except 'smile and wait', wait until her own death when she would meet him in heaven. It was all she had been able to do through the war too. Her husband, also James, an army reservist, rejoined immediately on the outbreak and, if I'm reading his service record correctly, he was in France with the BEF on 24 August He survived the war. The family lived in Coventry where James senior was a motor engine fitter, he served with the Army Service Corps. James Green junior, a blacksmith's striker, served with the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards.
Unfortunately, his medal index card has no details other than the name of his regiment and his army number; not even the fact of his death. The 1st Battalion Coldstream Guard's war diary doesn't appear to have been digitised so we know nothing of what was happening in the days around his death.
Geoffrey Foley was an engineer's apprentice when he enlisted in September A former public school boy, it wasn't long before he was selected for a commission, which was gazetted in December On 13 March , he was severely wounded when he was shot in the thigh by a sniper. On recovery he returned to the front but in October was hospitalised at Etaples with shell shock.
Returning again to the front he was leading his men in an attack at Roeux Wood on 3 May when in was severely wounded again in the left leg, this time by a machine gun. Taken to a Casualty Clearing Station, his leg had to be amputated. At first he appeared to be recovering but his conditioned worsened and he died.
Foley's father chose his inscription from John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. Christian has braved the Valley of the Shadow of Death, negotiating a narrow path in pitch darkness with a dangerous quagmire on one side and a deep ditch on the other. He has been surrounded by flame and smoke and hideous noises, seeing and hearing frightful sights and sounds - a continual howling and yelling as of a people in unutterable misery - until he reaches the other side and the day breaks, at which point Christian says: "He hath turned the shadow of death into the morning". This inscription comes from the last verse of Sir Francis Doyle's poem 'The Private of the Buffs', which he based on a supposed incident in China during the Second Opium War: "Some Sikhs and a private of the Buffs, having remained behind with the grog carts, fell into the hands of the Chinese.
On the next morning they were brought before the authorities, and commanded to perform the kow-tow. The Sikhs obeyed; but Moyse, the English soldier, declaring that he would not prostrate himself before any Chinaman alive, was immediately knocked upon the head and his body thrown on a dunghill.
Poor, reckless, rude, low-born, untaught, Bewildered and alone. A heart, with English instinct fraught, He yet can call his own, Aye, tear his body, limb from limb, Bring cord, or axe, or flame; He only knows that not through him Shall England come to shame. It is in fact a very unpleasant, jingoistic poem in which Moyse's 'brave' action is contrasted with that of the native soldiers who 'whine and kneel', unlike the 'English lad' who The poem concludes with the warning that the mightiest fleets with all their guns are as nothing: "Unless proud England keep untamed The strong heart of her sons.
So, let his name through England ring - A man of mean estate, Who died, as firm as Sparta's King Because his soul was great. He had a been a Territorial before the war, was mobilised on the outbreak and in France on 13 February On 8 September that year he was with a working party in the trenches when he was wounded in the abdomen and died the next day.
His father, also a coal miner, chose his inscription. Doomed to know not Winter, only Spring, a being Trod the flowery April blithely for awhile, Took his fill of music, joy of thought and seeing, Came and stayed and went, not ever ceased to smile. S' , written to commemorate an eighteen-year-old boy, Francis Albert Sitwell, who died of consumption in Davos in Skene, who worked for the 'Liverpool and London and Globe Insurance Company', joined the Territorials in June and was called up immediately on mobilization that August.
He was killed two years later. His Lieutenant wrote to Skene's mother, telling her: 'Whilst up reconnoitring with his officer and company sergeant major yesterday a shell burst close to them, killing the officer and company sergeant-major, and severely wounding your son. He was at once taken to a dressing station but died the same day.
He will be greatly missed by officers and others of his company; his capabilities and his cheery manner caused him to be liked by all. His widowed mother chose the same inscription for both her sons. Yet, O stricken heart, remember, O remember How of human days he lived the better part. April came to bloom and never dim December Breathed its killing chills upon the head or heart. This is a rather touchingly incongruous inscription for Captain Hall RFC, whose Military Cross was awarded for conspicuous gallantry in flying not only in the worst weather and at very low altitudes, but once at an extremely low altitude and under very heavy enemy fire in order to range the artillery's guns.
But then 'mummie', who chose it, was quite an usual woman. The next time she surfaces it is as Ethel Sydney performing in a musical in New York. After this the records show that she divorced Sydney Donald Edward Hall in and married Samuel Robinson Oliver who divorced her in at which point she married the co-respondent, John Upston Gaskell. He left her in and the following year she married Alastair Ian Matheson who, born in , was just younger than her son would have been.
You can perhaps see why her son was her 'sweet ideal'. Durham Donald George Hall was born in and educated at Charterhouse. He left school in the summer of and was commissioned into the Yorkshire Regiment before transferring to the Royal Flying Corps. In January he went to France with the newly formed 80 Squadron.
On the 26 March he failed to return from a patrol. Witnesses saw him bring his plane down near Albert. It is thought it had been damaged by enemy ground fire. Hall had been wounded and died of his wounds in a Casualty Clearing Station the next day. This is a really unusual inscription, unusual because I have not previously come across one that quotes the poetry of Siegfried Sassoon. The quotation comes from Aftermath , which Sassoon wrote in From the reference to 'your men', it's as though Sassoon is reminiscing with a fellow officer, but his intention is to remind everyone that, however much people might now be looking back at the camaraderie of the trenches, the whole thing was appalling: Do you remember that hour of din before the attack, - And the anger, and blind compassion that seized and shook you then As you peered at the doomed and haggard faces of your men?
Do you remember the stretcher-cases lurching back With dying eyes and lolling heads, those ashen-grey Masks of the lads who once were keen and kind and gay? Have you forgotten yet? Look up, and swear by the green of the Spring that you'll never forget. Private Thomas Boote volunteered in when he can only have been He served with the 5th Cheshire Regiment and went with it to France in February , earning the Star.
After this the trail goes cold. He died on 12 January and was buried in the cemetery of his home town, Runcorn in Cheshire. This indicates that he died in Britain but whether of wounds or illness I haven't been able to find out. Boote's War Grave Commission headstone was not issued until If he had never had one before I believe the War Graves Commission are prepared to provide one now, with an inscription. That therefore must have been chosen by members of his family in Sassoon was a powerful poet but a minority poet in His position was very different in His sentiments were not popular with those who were choosing inscriptions in the immediate post-war years, nor were those of Wilfred Owen, despite their popularity now.
I've seen Owen quoted twice, once by his parents on his own headstone, and once on a grave at Fromelles. But again, that is a modern inscription chosen sometime in the early twenty-first century. Richard Vidal, a farmer from Manitoba, was one of his parents nine children. He enlisted on 14 February and served with the Canadian Cyclists Corps.
Trained as an elite to carry out intelligence work, members of the corps underwent an intensive course that included musketry, bombing, bayonet fighting and the use of Lewis guns, as well as signalling and range-finding. Despite this, cyclists tended to be used for traffic control or as trench guides, ambulance drivers or even for burying the dead. However, during the last one hundred days, as the war became a war of movement, the cyclists came into their own and were finally able to do the intelligence work for which they had been trained.
They could be sent in advance of the infantry to keep in touch with the retreating enemy, they were used for reconnaissance and scouting and some of them took part in direct combat. All this was far more dangerous than their earlier work had been and they became known as the suicide battalions. His mother chose his inscription, acknowledging that the price of victory had meant the loss of her son. Dusk and shadows falling, O'er land and sea; Somewhere a voice is calling Calling for me! Night and stars are gleaming, Tender and true; Dearest! Finucane was with a working party on the night of 4 January when he was shot 'through the heart'.
He had only been in France since 13 November the previous year. Nevertheless, although his military career may have been short his civilian life beforehand had been fairly exciting. A steward on the transatlantic liners, he had been on board the Lusitania when she was torpedoed and sunk off the coast of Ireland on 7 May Finucane had escaped from the liner just before she sank and was picked up by a boat. The People's Stories website has a detailed, and rather more colourful account of this event than I've given - it's worth reading! After the Lusitania, Finucane served on another Cunard ship, the Aquitania, which was being used as a hospital ship off Gallipoli.
He enlisted on 12 December , just before the Allies evacuated the peninsula. Finucane's widowed mother chose his inscription for her youngest child. Sentimental postcards that feature the song usually show a pair of lovers - with any luck this link will show you an example. But a mother can yearn to hear her son's voice just as much as a wife or girlfriend.
In a letter to the parents the chaplain states that he met his death on the 20th in the fighting before Cambrai. Joining the army soon after leaving school, he was drafted to France about March , took part in the fighting in High Wood, and on the Somme. At the latter place he was wounded in the knee, and was brought over here, and sent to a hospital in Glasgow. Returning to Ripon, it was understood that he was not to be sent away until he was However, at his own request, he returned to the fighting area two months before that time arrived, and met his death as stated. He lies in a corner of a foreign land which will be for ever England.
His parents take this opportunity of thanking all those kind friends who have sympathised with them in their terrible loss. He was therefore just 17 when he went to France 'about March ' and 18 and 10 months when he returned to the front two months before his nineteenth birthday. He must have been killed almost immediately in the 51st Highland Division's attack on Flesquieres. On the second anniversary of his death, his family inserted the following announcement in the In Memorial column of the Derby Daily Telegraph: Statham - To the Glory of God and in loving remembrance of our dear son and brother Pte Arnold Statham and his gallant comrades of the Seaforth Highlanders, who gave their lives for King and country Nov.
Statham's body was originally buried in the 51st Divisional Cemetery, but thirteen years later all the bodies here were exhumed and reburied in Orival Wood Military Cemetery. It was at this point that the families would have been asked to provide a personal inscription. Ten years after the In Memoriam announcement, it wasn't that the memory of their son had faded but Mr and Mrs Statham perhaps no longer associated his death with glory. The deceased officer, who was a member of the firm of Frank A Davenport and Son, was educated at King's College, Goulburn, and was 26 years of age. He was recently awarded the Military Cross for conspicuous bravery.
It is noted that you have stated "same message". Evidently you sent another form at the same time, but as each one is separately dealt with it is necessary that the inscription be shown on each form. I do not want any mistake about this, all I wish are those two words [last three words all underlined]. Would you please let me know if it is clearly understood Your truly Mabel Davenport" "14 May Dear Madam, I have to acknowledge receipt of your letter of 16th April, which has been forwarded to this office by the Secretary, Department of Defence, and note you desire simply the two words "Same message" to appear as the personal inscription on the permanent memorial over the grave of your husband, the late Lieutenant GK Davenport MC This inscription is in German.
According to his medal index card, he joined the British Army some time after the beginning of January , served with the 7th Battalion East Kent Regiment and died of wounds in a Casualty Clearing Station near Poperinghe on 27 September His mother signed for his inscription, Ruhe sanft in fremde erde, rest peacefully in foreign earth. All the above is fact, this is surmise. Matucha died in a Casualty Clearing Station, he hadn't been moved back to a base hospital so his wounds were likely to have been quite recent.
The 7th Battalion had not been in the trenches during September. I would suggest that this was when Matucha was wounded. A soldier only had to have arrived alive at some form of aid post for it to be said that he had died of wounds. Even if his death followed soon after the wounding. Matucha must have died before midnight.
What was an Austro-Hungarian citizen doing in the British Army? This is even more of a surmise. Bohemia, post-war Czecho-Slovakia, wanted independence from Austria-Hungary. Some Bohemians joined the Czech Legions and fought with the Allies - most however did not. Some, and perhaps Matucha was one of them, joined the Allied armies.
Harry Griffiths died of wounds in a Casualty Clearing station at Duisans. Does the inscription his father chose refer to the fact of his death, the wounds that he suffered or the fact that he had to be involved in the war at all? Griffiths was a volunteer who served originally with the 15th Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment, formed in Birmingham in September He went with it to France, landing in Boulogne on 27 November At the time of his death he was with the 1st Battalion.
It's not possible to tell when he was wounded but the battalion had attempted an attack on the German lines on 31 March. They were driven back by heavy machine-gun fire, rifle grenades and artillery, suffering twenty-five Other Rank casualties killed and wounded. These words form the last line of each of the three verses of Sir Henry Newbolt's poem 'Vitai Lampada'. This is the torch of life, which each generation nurtures before passing it on to the next, its flame intact.
The flame is nurtured by each person playing his part, playing the game, to the benefit the whole team, regiment or country. Massively popular in its day, the poem has come in for much subsequent ridicule, particularly for its second verse: The sand of the desert is sodden red, - Red with the wreck of a square that broke; - The Gatling's jammed and the Colonel dead, And the regiment blind with dust and smoke. The river of death has brimmed his banks, And England's far, and Honour a name, But the voice of a schoolboy rallies the ranks: 'Play up!
As an inscription the meaning is to those still living to take up the torch the dead have dropped and carry on playing the game. Haworth's father chose it. On 6 June , the battalion took part in the attack on the Messines Ridge, which followed the explosion of several large mines. Arthur Edwards died of wounds in a base hospital in Boulogne. His father chose his inscription, still obviously stunned by the suddenness of his son's death. It seemed to him as though one minute he'd received a post card from his son saying that he was quite well and the next a letter informing him that his son was dead.
It's likely that his son was given one to fill at some point before he was wounded or even when he was first admitted to hospital. These cards were a means by which soldiers could quickly keep in touch with home.
