HEROES OF THE EMPIRE

DIX. —In loving memory of our dear son, Pte. L. W. A. Dix. SX13774, 2/27 th.   killed in action, N.G., 1942. If all the world was ours to give, we would gladly and more just to see your smiling face   come through our door saying Hello,   mum and dad. To have and to love, then   to part, it's the saddest story of a mother's heart. Though his smile has   gone forever and his voice we cannot   hear, we shall never lose the memory of   the one we love so dear. —Inserted by his   loving mother, father, sisters and brothers. 

 DIX. —In loving memory of Llew, died, New Guinea, September 8, 1942. —Always remembered by Mr. and Mrs. Wagener   and family.
