 Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom with the initials GvRI (George the Fifth, Rex Imperator) 


He whom this scroll commemorates

was numbered among those who,

at the call of King and Country, left all

that was dear to them, endured hardness,

faced danger, and finally passed out of 

the sight of men by the path of duty

and self-sacrifice, giving up their own

lives that others might live in freedom.

Let those who come after see to it

that his name not be forgotten.
