ROLL OF HONOUR
(Burnley Express 5th October/10/18)
DIXON-In sweetest remembrance of my dear husband, Private Charles Dixon, 56107, who was killed in action in France on the 9th day of September, 1918.
Often I think of you, dear husband,
And my heart is sad with pain;
All this world, would be a heaven,
Could I hear your voice again.

Time may heal my broken heart,
Time may make my wound less sore;
But time can never stay the longing,
For my loved one gone before.
One of the best
-From his sorrowing Wife, 1, Haulgh Street.

-In loving memory of Private Charles Dixon, 56107, King’s Liverpool Irish, who was killed in action in France on September 9th, 1918.

Oh, Charles dear, tis hard to part,
With one so good and kind in heart;
When others return we will miss you more,
It’s realisation will make our hearts sore,

Oh! For the touch of a vanished hand,
And the sounds of a voice that is still;
Deeply regretted.
-From Pollie and Jack, Railway Street, Brierfield.

In loving memory of Private Charles Dixon, 56107, King’s Liverpool Irish, who was killed in action in France, September 9th, 1918.
With aching hearts we shook his hand,
Tears glistened in our eyes,
We wished him luck, but little thought,
It was his last good-bye.
-From his Loving Mother and Family.
