Notes

In ever loving memory of our dear Son and Brother Wallace Cousens (sic) aged 30 killed in action September 2nd 1915

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.

Never forgotten by his Father, Mother Brothers and Sister.
Pew Hill, Chippenham

Wilts Times 9 September 1916

There seems to be some confusion over the spelling of the name Couzens either with an S or a Z. The newspaper report publishes his name with a S yet the CWGC, Menin Gate and Soldiers Died have it with a Z. This is the same spelling on the MEdal Index Card.
