Gone from our homes, but not our hearts, the one we loved so well; if we could have raised his dying head, and heard his last farewell, the parting would not have been so hard, for those who loved him dear, but only those who have lost can tell what pain it is to bear. Ever in our thoughts. – Wife, mother, and family, also brother William (now a prisoner of war). “COMERY. – In loving memory of my dear brother Herbert, M.G.C., killed in action August 26th, 1917. Gone, but not forgotten. – Loving brother Jack (Mesopotamia).” Above is courtesy of Jim Grundy and his facebook pages Small Town Great War Hucknall 1914-1918
