In memory of Hugh Rose Ross, Lieut Royal Artillery second son of GWH Ross of Cromarty born 31st May 1854 war with Afghanistan having broken out, Lt Ross volunteered to join any Field Battery going to the front and was at once posted to G Battery 4th Brigade which formed a part of General Stewart’s Army. Attacked with dysentery at Quettah he didn’t report his illness lest he should be left behind but marched with his Battery doing his duty to the last till he reached Pishin Valley where in camp on the 12th Jan 1879 he died in the 25th year of his age. A bright example of soldier like zeal and devotion to duty.
