Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Judge Charles and Maude JAMESON, District Court, Brisbane

On Thursday. 12th instant, the sad news came through that 2nd Lieutenant C. C. Jameson had been killed in action on 4th instant. He was the eldest son of his Honour District Court Judge Jameson, and was 21 years of age.

JAMESON.—In loving memory of my school  and soldier chum, Lieutenant Charles Chalmers Jameson, killed in action 4th April, 1917.
As with thee years her record runs,
The school must honour many a name,
But none with such immortal claim
As these, the bravest of her sons.
And if some may no more return,
Let us not daunt the heart with tears.
But vow that for unending years
Their beacon—memories shall burn,
Blazoning till the school's last breath
That cowardice is eternal shame,
That courage is eternal fame,
And love triumphant over death.
And though that he was worthy, he was wys,
And of his port is meek as is a mayde,
He nevere yet no vileinye ne sayde
In all his life, un-to no maner wight,
He was a verray parfit gentil knight.
Inserted by C. W. Davidson, Lieutenant.
