->1916 Husband died @ Lijssenthoek, Flanders, Belgium

IN loving memory of my dear husband, William Walter Jessup, 40th Battalion, who died of wounds received in France on 23rd October, 1916.
It's just twelve months ago to-day,
He gave his life for his country,
For Honour, Faith, and Right;
With us his memory ever lies,
He fought a noble fight.
He sleeps not in his native land,
But under foreign skies,
Far from those who loved him,
In a Hero's grave he lies.
Sadly missed.
Inserted by his loving wife, Florence E. Jessup, Minstone Road, Scottsdale.
IN fond and loving memory of our dear son and brother, Pte W. W. Jessup, who died of wounds in France on Oct 23, 1916.
He sleeps not in his native land,
But under foreign skies,
Far from those that love him,
In a hero's grave he lies.
Far, far from the home of his childhood,
Away o'er the ocean so deep,
In a foreign land our loved one,
Is sleeping his last long sleep.
Inserted by his loving Father, Mother, Sisters and Brothers.[3]
