Came across this when having a wander and recorded it as it didn't look like the inscription would survive much longer. This man (James Scott of the 92nd Highlanders, aged 32) would have taken part in the Kabul to Kandahar march before fighting and dying in the final decisive battle of the 2nd Afghan War on September 1st 1880. Interesting to see change in accepted spelling of Candahar and Afghaniston (sic)
