In Ever Loving Memory of George William Taylor, of Carshalton Barrister at Law, B.A., Cambridge. Lieutenant R.F.A. Born at Carshalton Park September 29th.1892, Died in France Nov.9th.1917, of wounds received in Action, Nov. 2nd. 1917 Educated at Eton & Cambridge, he chose the Bar as his Profession but directly War was declared in 1914, he at once applied for & obtained his Commission in the Royal Field Artillery having previously served in The Cambridge Artillery. He loved & thought & fought enthusiastically, and all that he did was done well, almost with inspiration. To the small, as to the great events of his life he brought all the enthusiasm & vitality of his nature.The officer commanding his Battery wrote of him “He was in my opinion the best Subaltern and leader of men I have ever had the luck to have in my Battery, or to meet elsewhere.” Thus ended the life of a gallant gentleman, who made the supreme sacrifice for his country, as he was always prepared to do. He was buried in Dozinchem British Cemetery, Westvleteren. N.W. of Poperinge, Belgium. To all his relations & his multitude of friends his loss is irreparable.
