HATELEY.—In loving memory of my dear brother-in-law, Private Arthur Hateley, who died at sea on April 28, 1916.

Immaculate heart of Mary,

Your prayers for him extol;  

Oh, sacred heart of Jesus,

Have mercy on his soul.

HATELEY.—In loving memory of my dear husband, Private Arthur Hateley, who died at sea on the hospital ship Karoola on April 28, 1916.

He left his home in health and strength.

To answer his country's call;

He gave his life, he gave his best,

For you, for me, for all.

His King and country called him,

The call was not in vain; On Britain's roll of honor

You will find my dear husband's name.

Our father has gone where the weary find rest,

He is free from all sorrow and pain;

But some day we hope in that sweet land of rest,

To meet our dear father again.

—Inserted by his loving wife, Clotilda Hateley, and two little girlies, Doreen and Eileen. (
