The inscription is badly weathered and impossible to read. Indeed, the photograph is clearer than the gravestone. I think part of the inscription which is written in capital letters, reads 'Harry Wilikinson son of the above' who fell in action in Flanders .....Aged 24 years He died ... duty ... but it is not easy to say. I wonder whether somebody who knows how to do it could do a 'brass rubbing' to find out. The lettering is, however, incised. Perhaps there is another technique that could be used? I am not definitely sure of the word 'fell' but think that is what it says.
