PRIVATE HERBERT ERIC ADAMS
19TH APRIL 1918 AGE 19
BURIED: CHOCQUES MILITARY CEMETERY, FRANCE
A widowed father's farewell to his nineteen-year old son. The French for good-bye, in so far as it translates into English at all, means, until I see you again, or good-bye for the present. In this way Private Adams' father could be neatly indicating a belief in eternal life without being overtly religious ... or he could just be speaking French!
