Newspaper Memorials:

In loving memory of Private Alva Entwistle, who was killed at Hulloch, France, October 4th 1915. of Holly Mount, Helmshore.

"Too dearly loved to be forgotten."

From All at Holly Mount, Helmshore.

"Somewhere in France" a body lies,
Amid the battle's din,
But a spirit freed death's power denies,
And leaves a world of sin,
Somewhere at home a tear is shed,
And sorrow rends a breast;
But a trusting soul by pure faith fed,
Just whispers "God knows best."

In memory of my dear comrade, Private Alva Entwistle, 1st Battalion, Grenadier Guards, who made "The Great Sacrifice," October 4th 1915.

From Jack

"Proudly you gather, rank on rank to war,
As who had heard God's message from afar, 
All you had hoped for, all you had, you gave,
To save mankind - yourself you scorned to save."
"The blood of heroes in the seed of freedom."
