Wilts Times 6 November 1915

In loving memory of Pte Alfie Hand of the 2nd Wiltshire Regiment who was killed in action in Belgium October 24 1914.

Out on yonder battlefield, there is a silent grave,
Is one we loved so dearly, but we could not save,
His King and Country called him, he bravely did his best,
But God thought fit to take him to his eternal rest.

From his sorrowing Mother, Brother and Sisters.
23 Parklane, Chippenham

Wilts Times 27 October 1917

Hand. In loving memory of Pte Alfie Hand, 2nd Wiltshire Regiment who was killed at Brages, Belgium on October 24th 1914.

We often pause and think of him
And ponder how he died.
But, oh, it is so hard to think
We could not say Good bye.

Ever remembered by his loving Mother, Brothers and Sisters.
Mrs H Escott, 25 Parklane, Chippenham

Wilts Times 26 November 1918
