Words would fall out loss to tell,
But in heaven we hope to meet them,
Evermore with them to dwell."

Inserted by Parents, 13 Canal Street.

---------------------------------
There are 3 separate newspaper articles giving his service number as 3589.
Using that - and the date of death and the unit - there is only one

Service No: 3589
Date of Death: 25/09/1915
Regiment/Service: Gordon Highlanders 4th Bn.

There are no Theodore Thomson names listed at all.
It must be the same chap - but strange that the first names are quite different.

Canadian papers please copy

"We often think of you, dear Jim,
But act with outward show,
For the heart that mourns sincerely
Mourns silently and low.

Could we only have seen his face again
Though he had only come home to die;
To have kissed the face we loved so well,
And whispered a last good-bye.

But he went away, with his comrades
To a far better land of rest
To the starry fields of heaven.
Our soldier son gone West."

-Inserted by his parents.
