Front Inscription

This tablet is a tribute of affection and gratitude to the memory of Maldwyn Leslie Williams M.B.B.S.,

Lieut-Colonel and Commanding Officer of the First Field Ambulance in the Australian Imperial Force.

He died for the Empire on March 3rd 1917, from wounds sustained at Bapaume in France. 

"In the most faithful execution of his duty."   

At the University he won distinction in his medical course.  
He was a fine sportsman and played a worthy part in the Intercollegiate contests.  
He was deservedly loved by his fellow students for his simplicity, geniality, and graciousness, his gentleness and strength.
He died as he had lived, sacrificing himself for others, and his spirit is with us still.

This tablet has been erected by the Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers and men of his unit.

"Death is swallowed up in victory."
