Front Inscription

1939     1945
These laid the world away, poured out the red sweet wine of youth: gave up the years to be of work and joy, and that unhoped serene that men call age: and those who would have been their sons, they gave their immortality. 
Rupert Brooke.
Killed by enemy action while on the way to England to service agricultural machinery.
