HUTCHINSON – In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Pte. Tom Harry Hutchinson, aged 18, killed in action Nov. 3rd, 1918.

He left his home in the flower of youth,
He looked so strong and brave;
We little thought how soon he’d be
Laid in a hero’s grave.
We often sit and think of him,
And think of how he died;
It seemed so hard for us to part
And never say good-bye.

From Father, Brothers, and Sisters, 5 George Street, Carleton.

HUTCHINSON – In loving memory of my dear brother, Pte. Tom Harry Hutchinson, aged 18, killed in action Nov. 3rd, 1918.

Sleep on, dear brother, and take your rest,
They miss you most who loved you best;
We never forget you, nor do we intend,
For dearly we loved you and will to the end.

From his loving Sister and Brother-in-law, Lizzie and Tom.
