Epitaph

From the Tyrone Courier dated Thursday 15 August 1917: A Gallant Ulster Officer

A dedication service was held at the Parish Church, Benburb, when his Grace, the Lord Primate dedicated a tablet erected by Mrs Proctor and family to the memory of the late James Edwin Proctor and his eldest son Claude Beauchamp Proctor. The service being strictly private, only a few friends of the family were present. The tablet, which is of white marble, mounted on black marble, bore the following inscription:-
temp 'To the Glory of God, and in loving memory of James Edwin Proctor of Tullydoey, Moy and Limavady., co Londonderry, born the 27th day of July 1855, died on the 30th day of October 1913. Until the day break and the shadows flee away. And of his son, James Claude Beauchamp Proctor, M.A., L.L.D., born 21st June 1885, Captain in the 10th Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, who fell in action near Thiepval, France, whilst gallantly leading his men against the enemy's trenches, in charge of the Ulster Division. 1st July 1916. Dulce let decorum est pro patria mori.' temp
The Proctor family has a splendid record of patriotic service. The late gallant officer, whose supreme sacrifice is recorded above, was one of three soldier sons of the late Mr J E Proctor and of Mrs Proctor. The two surviving sons are Major George Norman Proctor, Kashmir Rifles, who took part in strenuous campaigning with the Indian Expeditionary Force in East Africa and was invalided home after a very severe attack of fever; and Lieutenant Edwin Vere Proctor, who came with the Australian Expeditionary Force.
