HE whom this scroll commemorates/ was numbered among those who,/ at the call of King and Country, left all/ that was dear to them, endured hardness,/ faced danger, and finally passed out of/ the sight of men by the path of duty/ and self-sacrifice, giving up their own/ lives that others might live in freedom./ Let those who come after see to it/ that his name be not forgotten./ 2nd Lieut. William Francis Wells-Cole/ Lincolnshire Regt.
