JMB1943

My Grandfather’s brother-in-law,

Henry John Mitchell, Private, G/16053 7th Bn. Royal Sussex Regiment

Killed in action at Bouzincourt on April 5, 1918 aged 21 yrs.

No known grave, and commemorated on Pozieres Memorial, France.

Son of James Thomas and Alice Emma Mitchell of Hastings, Sussex.

 

Fading away like the stars in the morning,

Losing their light in the glorious sun,

Thus did they pass from this earth and its toiling,

Almost forgotten with what they had done.

Who’ll sing the anthem? Who’ll tell the story?

Did their line hold? Did it scatter and run?

Can they at last be united in glory,

And always remembered for what they have done?
