GREEN.--On or about March 22, 1912, lost on the ill-fated Koombana, Edgar Percy, late of Somerset, England.

Sweet is the memory that never will fade,

Roses may wither, leaves fade and die,

If others forget you never will I.

--Inserted by his friend, Olive Fedders.


["In Memoriam", The West Australian, Thursday 20 March 1913, page 1]


GREEN.-In loving memory of our dear friend, Edgar P. Green, late of Wraxall, Somerset, England, who was lost with the ill-fated Koombana, on or about March 20, 1912.

There the tears of earth are dried;

There its hidden things are clear;

There the work of life is tried

By a juster Judge than here.

Father, in Thy gracious keeping,

Leave me now Thy servants sleeping.

-Inserted by E. Noad and family.
