In loving memory of
No. 4422 Pte. William Lawrence Purdy
A Squadron
The Royal Dragoons
Who died at Lucknow
on the 2nd Sept. 1904
Aged 24 years

We loved him, oh, no tongue can tell
How much we loved him, and how well
God loved him,too, and thought it best
To take our dear one to his rest.

Erected by his Comrades.
