MP. 2nd Life Guards, and of Lady Naylor-Leyland of Nantclwyd Hall, who died of wounds received in action in France 21st September 1914, aged 22. Mentioned in despatches for gallant and distinguished conduct in the field. "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" "He was the bravest of officers, his men were devoted to him as he always set them such a good example of pluck and courage and he died doing his duty as an English gentleman, I have indeed lost a dear friend and a subaltern of whom I was justly proud" Extract from his Colonel's letter Erected to him who was crowned with the love than which no man hath greater by his mother and brother

Lieutenant George Vyvyan Naylor-Leyland
