Death notice and memorium



Memorium dated May 1919, I can give no explanation for the difference in the dates quoted for George's death.

In proud and loving memory of my beloved son 9137 Corporal George Stevenson, 1st Cameron Highlanders killed in action 14th September,1914

Not marked by wood cross,

not even marked at all,

Just buried 'neath the green grass sod,

In the place they saw him fall.

Inserted by his sorrowing mother and brothers, 41 Muirpark Eskbank
