About this memory

Shaw - Killed in action on the 13th April.

Pte John Shaw (45093), Highland
Light Infantry, aged 22 years, beloved husband of MARGARET FINLAY, 16 Bedford Street, Stockbridge.

Oft I sit in sorrow and woe

There comes a dream of dear long ago;

And unknown to the world you stand by my side

And whisper " Dear wife death cannot divide",

Time and distance cannot change me,

Absence makes you feel so dear;

When memory brings the past before me

"Tis then I wish your voice to hear".

Sleep on dear Daddy and take thy rest."
