Blackmore: Remembering ... Jacob Wiltshire

All we know about Jacob Wiltshire is the epitaph on his gravestone. He was buried in Blackmore Churchyard.

“In fond memory of Jacob Wiltshire, Late 10th Essex. Died March 5 1923 from a wound received in France Feb 1917. Aged 34. ‘Severed only till He come’”. On the same stone below are the words, “Also at the right rests his brother Fred who died Dec 25 1902 Aged 16”.
