Notes:
Poem printed on front: Rest in Peace, Oh warrior brave/Now your task is o'er/All your best you gladly gave/To help us win the war/But the "Last Post," now has sounded/You've laid aside your sword/And God has called you from us/To your noble won reward/And this prayer we all are breathing/Through our hearts are wrung with pain/Rest on in peace, brave soldier/Till the trumpet sounds again.
