William Edwards 21182 Gordon Highlanders
EDWARDS___Killed in action on 28th July 1918, Pte. Wm Edwards (No 21182), Gordon Highlanders.
Little thought when he marched away
That he would no more return;
And now he lies in a soldier’s grave,
And we are left here to mourn.
Inserted by his father and mother and brothers and sisters—130 Alexander St., Dundee.
