IN MEMORIAM. JAMES K. PIRRET, Sec.-Lieut. King's Royal Rifle Corps. Fell 4th April, 1917. Call him not dead -- he has only "Gone West," What better way can we speak of his rest. Gone from the conflict, its terror and gloom -- To the beauty and brightness of God's "inner room." Valiant and brave -- he can never grow old, Never know weariness, sorrow, or cold. Always remembered, and loved as the day, Bravely he marched for his country away. Clear was the call, -- he was ready to go, Leading, he fell, with his face to the foe. One more young hero has stood the great test; Call him not dead -- he has only "Gone West." Mary Allen.
