H Regan

Regan - died of wounds received in action on the 3rd May, Corporal Henry Regan, Royal Scots, beloved son of Frank Regan, Loganlea, aged 21 years.

 

He sleeps beside his comrades,

In a hallowed grave, unknown;

But his name is written in letters of love

In the hearts he left at home.

 

Sleep on dear son, and take your rest,

For God called thee when He thought best,

Our loss is great, thine is gain,

In heaven we hope to meet again.

 

In the bloom of his life death claimed him,

In the pride of his manhood days;

His heart was good, his spirit brave,

His resting place is a soldier's grave.

 

Inserted by his father and mother, and brothers and sisters
