In loving memory of our dear son, Pte. John W. Somers, killed in action August 28th, 1918.

Lo still for him high service waits
Though earth’s last fight is fought
God did not give that Mortal Soul
To end at last in naught
That steadfast soldier-heart was not
For this brief life alone
Tis as a soldier he will stand
Before the great White Throne

Inserted by his
FATHER AND MOTHER
