Thank you very much TEW. I have been Googling like mad since I read your most welcome reply but I still can't find the poem. Do you have a copy of it or can you point me in the direction of the publisher please?

I've tried to find the full poem as well and failed.

You could try contacting the man who put up the info on Find A Grave, you'll need to register.

There are also his private papers at IWM, but too early for the poem.

And 'Family Notebook Vols 1 & 2 by JRT Aldous' Printed/published privately circa 1964/65, it may be in there but I can't find an available copy, Amazon list it but it's unavailable.
