Notes

In affectionate remembrance of Arthur Reginald Flower who passed away at the 50th General Hospital, Salonica on November 29th 1917.

Now a motherís heart is aching for a son she loved so well
Who gave his life for country, and in honourís cause he fell,
Had I but one last fond look into your loving face
Or, had I the chance to kneel down in that far off place
And held your head, dear son, whilst your young life ebbed away.
My heart would not be felt so sore through the tears I shed today.

From his sorrowing Mother, Father, Brother and Sisters.
Sweet Briar Cottage, Blind Lane, Chippenham

Wilts Times 23 February 1918

In loving memory of my dear brother, who fell asleep at Salonica, November 29th 1917.

He boldly went his duty to do,
Like others he did it well;
But now he lies in a soldierís grave
Somewhere in Salonica.

From his sorrowing brother, George, Meeret, India

Wilts Times 23 February 19118

In ever loving memory of our dear son and brother Arthur Reginald Flower who passed away November 29th 1917 at 50th General Hospital, Salonica.

Four years have passed since that sad day
When one we loved was called away,
God took him home, it was his will,
Forget him, no, we never shall.
If we could have raised his dying head
Or heard his last farewell
The blow would not have been so hard
To those he loved so well.

From his loving Mother, Father, Brother and Sisters.
19 Blind Lane, Chippenham

Wilts Times 30 November 1918

Formerly 1587 Royal Wilts Yeomanry.
