joined the Army. After training for five

months he crossed to France, and within a

week of his landing there was participating

one of the 400 survivors of that battle out

of regiment of 1150.

 Ernest Duesherry, his brother, missingRoyal

Marine of Hood's Battalion, Royal Naval

Division, is reported wounded for the third

time. He joined the Army at the commence-

ment of the war, and has seen much active

service with the troops abroad.

DUESBERRY  - In loving memory of Cpl. J. Dues-

bery, killed in action on Sept. 16th, 1916

"Far away from his home and loved ones,

Laid to rest in a far-off land;

Never more shall my eyes behold him,

Never more shall I clasp his dear hard;

'Tis only those who have lost can tell

The pain of parting without a farewell."

- From his loving Mother and Sisters and

Brothers (somewhere in France)
