About this memory
"The Edinburgh Evening news,

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."
Bedford Street, Stockbridge
