Also of our dear son

Charles Henry

Of the 4th Canadian Infantry

Killed in action July 9 1916

Aged 25 years

Interred near Ypres, Belgium

Greater love hath no man than

This that a man lay down his

Life for his friends St John 15:13

The golden evening brightens 

in the west

Soon, soon to faithful warriors 

comes their rest

Sweet is the calm of paradise

he blessed

Alleluia
