Monday Mourning ~ Drowned whilst working on Submarine

Loving Memory of
A Dearly
Loved Husband and Father
James Maggs Brown
Accidentally Drowned in Ipswich Dock
Whilst working on H.M.S Submarine D.4
February 23rd 1915
in his 42nd Year
What Peaceful hours we once enjoyed
How sweet their memory still
But they have left an aching void
The world can never fill
Beloved and Respected by all who knew him
