The gravestone of writer Rudyard Kipling's only son, Lt. John Kipling, stands among other World War One graves at St. Mary's Advanced Dressing Station Cemetery in Haisnes, France on Thursday, March 13, 2014. After his only son was killed in the Battle of Loos, Rudyard Kipling became an influential member of the Imperial War Graves Commission, later renamed the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, which established the standard gravestone of Portland stone, seen in Commonwealth cemeteries around the world. It was Kipling who suggested the phrase 'Their Name Liveth For Evermore' for memorial markers, and 'Known unto God', for the graves of those soldiers who bodies could not be identified.
