26 September 1919

BEAUMONT - In loving memory of Pte. Benjamin Beaumont, 2nd Suffolk Regiment, reported missing and presumed killed, Sept. 27th, 1917.

Sleep on, dear son, as days go by;
No flowers can we lay on the grave where you lie,
For the broad wide ocean does keep us apart;
Your ever smiling face shall dwell in our hearts.
As we look at your picture that hangs an the wall,
The smile on your face we can't but recall.
We miss you, God knows, and mourn you unseen,
And dwell on the memories of days that have been.

From Father, Mother, Sisters and Brothers, Sunny Nook, Hebden.
