Biography contributed by Carol Foster

Son of Annie Stayt of Newbury Junction, Mackay, QLD

STAYTE.— In loving memory of my dear son, Lance Corporal Henry Joseph Stayte, killed in action in France, April 29, 1917; aged 26 years.
Could I, his mother, have clasped his
hand,
The son I loved so well;
Or kissed his brow when death was
near,
And whispered to my son, "Farewell"!
I seem to see his sweet dear face
Through a mist of anxious tears,
But his mother's part is a broken heart
And a burden of lonely years.
(Inserted by his loving mother, sis
ters, and brothers.)


STAYTE — In sad but loving memory of our dear nephew and cousin, Harry, who was killed in action in France on 29th April;
'Tis sweet to be remembered,
And this . out. love will .show,
We hold- you still in memory,
As years they come and go.
(Inserted by his loving uncle and aunt and cousins. Mr. and Mrs. G. Harvison.)
