In hoc signo vinces / Hic scripta sunt nomina / Heroum Formbeiensium / Qui in bello magno nationum / Vitas pro patria obtulerunt. / O Bone Jesu / Per crucem tuam speramus / Ut nomina eorum in Libro Vitae / Scripta inveniantur. / Animae eorum requiescant in pace // In this Sign thou shalt conquer / On this stone are written / The names of the Formby Heores / Who in the great battle of the nations / Sacrificed their lives for their country. / O Good Jesus, / Through Thy Cross we have hope / Their names may be found written / In the Book of Life. / May their souls rest in peace.
