In Memoriam  -  
MILLAR -  Leonard W.Millar.   
Killed in action say the cables
That is the tale they tell
Of the brave young lad who loved ---
Of the lad we loved so well.
How the life was sped we know not,
What the last word,  look,  or thought.
Only that he did his duty -
Died as nobly as he fought.
Inserted by his loving parents,  brothers and sisters.
