Buck of the Spalding Territorials who volunteered for service early in the war, and died of wounds in France, on April 14th 1915. A plate attached on the bed will bear the following inscription: The Whaplode Bed. This bed is a memorial by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Buck and their Son and Daughter, Mr. F. C. Buck and Mrs. E. C.
