The Rev Philip "Tubby" Clayton (founder of Toc H) quoted this verse at the Funeral of my Great Uncle, Sir Ion Hamilton Ben, at All Hallows by the Tower, London, in 1961. I have been searching for their source forever. Thanks!

He was most merciful in fight,
And of his face a single sight
The dying embers of the right
Into a flame would fan.

From what little I've found, on just one quote that is similar to this, it may very well be that the Reverend Philip Thomas Byard Clayton CH MC (1885-1972) was the original author.
