“In loving memory of Gilbert, my dear husband and daddy, who died on the 20th November, 1918.
We who loved you sadly miss you
As it dawns another year;
In the lonely hours of thinking
Thoughts of you are ever dear.
Inserted by his sorrowing wide Ada Rummery and little son, Norman.” (Evening Post, 20 Nov. 1919, p. 1.)
