Medals: British War Medal, Victory MedalMother wrote to Base Records, 19 May 1920, responding to letter of 3 May 1920 saying that her proposed inscription on the grave 'far exceeded' the limit of 66 letters including spaces, and offering an alternative form of words: 'We have loved him in life,/Let us not forget him in death,/Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord,/And let perpetual light shine on him./Sweet Jesus have mercy on his soul.' That inscription was still too long, and in the absence of any further communication was shorted by the War Graves Commission.
