In Loving Memory of
DRIVER HAROLD LEAVER, R.F.A,
Killed in France, July 4th, 1918, aged 29 years.
We think of him whose voice we miss.
Whose smile once shed delight.
Whose lips impressed a mother's kiss,
When taking rest at night.
From Father, Mother, and Herbert.
1, Cooper St., Nelson.

In Loving Memory of
DRIVER HAROLD LEAVER, R.F.A,
Killed in France, July 4th, 1918, aged 29 years.
Death comes in unexpected forms.
At unexpected hours.
To-morrow we may never see,
To-day alone is ours.

In Loving Memory of
DRIVER HAROLD LEAVER, R.F.A,
Killed in France, July 4th, 1918, aged 29 years.
Had He asked us, well we know
We should cry, "O, spare this blow!"
Yes, with streaming tears should pray.
"Lord, we love him, let him stay."
From Mary and Willie

In Loving Memory of My Dear husband
Driver Harold Leaver, R.F.A.
Killed 4th July 1918
And was interred at Houchin Cemetery
France.
Gone is the one I loved so dear,
Silent the voice I loved to hear.
Too far away for sight and speech,
But not too far my thoughts to reach.
From his loving Wife.

In Loving Memory of our Dear Son-in-Law
Driver Harold Leaver, R.F.A.
Killed July 4th, 1918
And was interred at Houchin Cemetery,
France.
Happy memories, like a banner unfurled,
Of the days when we were all together,
But the bitterest memory to day is unfurled
As silently we think of you.
From Father and Mother-in-Law
