In ever loving memory of our dear son and brother Frederick Escot who was killed in action at Neuve Chapelle March 12 1915

A voice we loved is still.
A place is vacant at our hearth
Which can never be filled.

Wilts Times 17 March 1917

In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Frederick Escott who was killed in action at Neuve Chappelle March 11th 1915 aged 21.

We think we see his smiling face as he bade us his last good bye
And left his home for ever in a foreign land to die
But the bitterest blow has yet to come when the warriors all return
And we miss among the cheering crowd the face of our dear son.

From his Mother, Father and Brothers
102 Woodlane, Chippenham.
