Died of Dysentery.
1/15 Btn London Regt (Prince of Wales' Own Civil Service Rifles)
In ever loving memory of our dear son and brother Pte HR Bowden who
died October 29th 1918 at Haumont, France, prisoner in German hands.
We pictured him safe returning,
We longed to clasp his hand,
But God has postponed the meeting
It will be in a better land.
His loving ways and smiling face
A pleasure to recall.
Though there is nothing left to answer
But his photo on the wall.
A good life is often too short but a good name will forever live.
Still sadly missed and ever remembered by his sorrowing Mother, Father
Parkside, The Folly, Chippenham.
