HEROES OF THE GREAT WAR

WARNER.— In sad but ever-loving memory of our dear son, brother, and uncle, Private Edward Warner (Ted), who was killed in action about August 23rd, 1916. He nobly did his duty.  

Somewhere in France he is lying,

But where we cannot tell.

Midst the roaring of the battle,

And the rain of shot and shell,            

Fighting for loved ones, King and country, too He like a hero fell.

He lies with many a gallant lad,

Beneath the Frenchman's sod.

Far from those who love him,  

In a hero's grave he lies.  

—Inserted by his ever-loving mother and father, sisters, Lizzie and Nell; sister and brother-in-law, Mrs. and Mr. C. E. Wright, nieces and nephews, at Lake Wangary; also brother, Jack (on active service.
