You Awoke On A Summers Day, On A Field Far From Home, Stood Shoulder To Shoulder With Your Comrades To Step Into The Unknown. You Would Not Wake The Following Day, The Ultimate Price Paid, But I Shall Always Remember The Sacrifice You Made. Thank You

William Ashworth Kay was my father's uncle - they never met as Ashworth died age 21, in 1917 before my father was born in 1930
