Son of William and Annie Margaret BOLTON, Childers, Queensland

BOLTON.—In ever loving memory of our dear brother, Private Vance Albert Bolton, 9th Battalion, killed in action in France, 21st July, 1918.
Far and 'oft our thoughts do wander
To a grave not far away;
Where they laid our brother, Vance,
Just five years ago to-day.
