The Chaplain wrote -
"I saw him nearly every day since he came here, and always found him patient and brave. We sometimes used to talk about the old Psalms, and I remember him lying and singing softly the 46th Psalm to ‘Stroudwater.’ He passed away peacefully, trusting in Christ his saviour. He is being buried in our Military Cemetery at Etaples, a well-kept place where the bodies of many of our brave soldiers have been laid to rest.”
“Be still and know that I am God.“
- Psalm xivi:I0.
Friends of Angus Maclennan will remember his anxiety in having to leave his totally blind and aged mother, and will appreciate what a comfort to his heart was the above text.
