Transcription

[underlined] A LAMENT [/underlined]
We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun, or feel the rain,
Without remembering how they who went,
Ungrudgingly, and spent
Their all for us, too, the sun & rain?
A bird among the rain wet lilac sings
But we, how shall we turn to little things
And listen to the birds [indecipherable word] and streams
Made holy by their dreams,
Nor feel the heart-break in the heart of things?
Lillian Wilson Gibson.
[page break]
[Form 446 Royal Air Force Traffic Accident Report]
[Ration card for ACW1. J. Robinson for the months of November and December, serving at RAF Station Pocklington]
