Walter's Story

A loving son, a brother kind,

A beautiful memory left behind;

He proudly answered his country's call,

His life he gave for one and all.

He sleeps not in his native land,

But 'neath some foreign skies;

And far from those who loved him best,

In a hero's grave he lies.

The above poem was written for his memorial service, I have the original card and some newspaper clipping from the time

Capt. Walter Gamble , M.C. was my great Uncle who died of his wounds in France on June 12th 1917
