Recommended Posts

My Grandfather’s second cousin,

James Frank Ballard, Private, L/8245 2nd Bn. Royal Sussex Regiment

Died of wounds, received at Vendresse, on September 14, 1914 aged 28 yrs.

No known grave, and commemorated on La Ferte-sous-Jouarre Memorial, France.

Son of William Albert and Mary Ann Ballard 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?
