Insertion in the Lurgan Mail:
HOLLAND – Killed in action on July 1st 1916, Private Albert Holland, 9th Royal Irish Fusiliers (County Armagh Volunteers), deeply beloved husband of Evelyn Holland.
Out on a lonely battlefield,
My husbands’ life has gone,
He fought for King and country,
And for his friends at home.
I shall meet him some bright morning,
Resting by the waters fair,
He is waiting for my coming,
In that upper garden there.
Deeply regretted by his sorrowing wife and two little children.
Evelyn Holland, Drumgor, Lurgan.
