BARNOLDSWICK – ACCIDENTALLY KILLED IN EGYPT

News of the death of Pte. Frank Mayoh, Worcestershire Yeomanry, was received last week-end from Egypt by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Mayoh, 8 Victoria Road, Barnoldswick. The message gives no details beyond the bare facts that he had been killed accidentally on July 5th. Pte. Mayoh was 20 years of age. He enlisted in February, 1917, and had been out in Egypt about three months.

09 July 1920

MAYOH – In loving memory of our dear son, Trooper Frank Mayoh, 1/1st Worcester Yeomanry, accidentally killed in Egypt, July 5th, 1919, aged 20 years.

No loving hand clasped his that day,
No home voice said good-bye;
We could not hear his last farewell,
But God Himself was nigh.

“He died at the post of duty.”

From Father, Mother, Sisters, Brothers and his friend Polly, 8 Victoria Road, Barnoldswick.

08 July 1921

MAYOH – In loving memory of our dear son, Trooper Frank Mayoh, 1/1st Worcester Yeomanry, accidentally killed in Egypt, July 5th, 1919, aged 20 years.

Friends may think that we forget you
When at times they see us smile,
But they do not know the sorrow
That the smile hides all the while.

Ever remembered by his Father, Mother, Brothers and Sisters, 8 Victoria Road, Barnoldswick.
