Epitaph For An English Soldier And An Indian Soldier Buried Together In France

R C Lehmann 1856 ( Ecclesall, Sheffield, ) – 1929 ( High Wycombe, )



When the fierce bugle thrilled alarm,
From lands apart these fighters came.
An equal courage nerved each arm,
And stirred each generous heart to flame.
 
Now, greatly dead, they lie below;
Their creed or language no man heeds,
Since for their colour they can show
The blood-red blazon of their deeds!
