WILLIAM HUSSEY, Captain in the New Zealand Colonial Force
Late of Her Majesty’s 9th Regiment of Foot, who was killed at Wairoa, New Zealand
While gallantly leading an attack on a native Pah on the 25th of December 1865 aged 31

[Mod Edit Adam] Captain Hussey had served in the Crimea and been in the 9th Regiment of Foot before joining the Taranaki Military Settlers volunteer unit in New Zealand. See more about the campaign he died in here:

Captain Hussey and 100 men, Taranaki Military Settlers, arrived from Opotiki just too late to take part in the Hungahunga-toroa expedition. Captain Hussey was killed in the engagement at Omaru-hakeke, Upper Wairoa, on Christmas Day, 1865.

Thank you for posting this photo, both these men are my great uncles, I didn't know much about this only heard through family that two uncles had passed away in WW1. They are both Maryhill born and bred and I feel so sad that Robert is now lying in an unmarked grave. Alexander was killed at Neuve Chapelle there is no known grave for him. I didn't know this memorial to them existed, it's so nice to see them both commemorated. Catherine.
