JOWETT – In loving memory of our dear son, Pte. Ernest Jowett (Royal Fusiliers), who was killed in France Oct. 26th, 1917.

Just one year has passed away
Since our great sorrow fell,
Yet in our hearts we mourn the loss
Of one we loved so well.
The hardest part is yet to come,
When the heroes do return;
We’ll miss amongst the cheering throng
The one who’ll not return.

– From, Mother, Father, Sisters, and Brothers. 14, South Avenue, Barnoldswick.
