William Adam 9076 Highland Light Infantry
ADAM―Killed in action on 22nd May, No. 9076 Private William Adam, Highland Light Infantry, aged 19½ years.
Little I thought when we last said good-bye
It would be the last parting between you and I;
In the red fields of France you are laid far away,
But not too far for my thoughts to stray.
Inserted by his lady friend, Miss Maggie A. Rorke, No. 225 Overgate.
