BROWN - In loving memory of Pte. Willie Brown, 27545, 9th Yorks. Regiment, died in France, October 18th, 1918.

Only a memory of by-gone days
And a sight for a face unseen,
But a constant feeling that God alone
Knoweth best what might have been.

Ever remembered by Lizzie, Park View Terrace, Salterforth.
