IDESON – In ever loving memory of our dear nephew and cousin, Corporal Robert Francis Ideson, Australian Imperial Forces, who was killed in action October 31st, 1917.

Somewhere in France, in a lonely grave,
Besides his comrades he is laid;
A loving nephew and cousin dear,
None at his grave to shed a tear.
No one who knew him need ever be told,
A warmer heart death never made cold.

From Mr. and Mrs. Rodwell, Frank and Inez, Wood Nine, Barden.
