    IN MEMORIAM.
    NICHOLSON; —In loving memory of Claude Harold Nicholson (N.Z.M.C.), who died from injuries received on board the Marquette, on October 29, 1915.
    Just two sad years have now gone past
    Since that great sorrow fell,
    Yet in our hearts we mourn the loss
    Of him we loved so well
