Natal Witness, Wednesday, January 9, 1918 "ROLL OF HONOUR GARDNER. - In memory of my dear son, William James GARDNER, killed in action in France, October 15th, 1917. Afar from his home and the friends of his youth He fought for the standard of honour and truth, For the love of his king the wide ocean he crossed. Soon, alas! was his fall, but he died at his post, Victorious he fell, for he rose as he fell, In that bright land of glory for ever to dwell. -Inserted by loving Mother, Father, and Sister. 9041"
