WHAT IS WRITTEN ON THE ASHES
There are two labels on the trophy. The upper one says, "The Ashes" and the lower one reads:
"When Ivo goes back with the urn, the urn;
Studds, Steel, Read and Tylecote return, return;
The welkin will ring loud,
The great crowd will feel proud,
Seeing Barlow and Bates with the urn, the urn;
And the rest coming home with the urn."
