79th Cameron Highlanders

Spotted this in the Dean Cemetery in Edinburgh where I found my Great Grandfather's grave. There is so much information out there that I will not duplicate it. However there are 4 photo's of reasonable quality for anyone who wants to download them.

I have also transcribed the transcription. On older monuments it is customary, regrettably to not note the "other" ranks who fell. This Website seems to be very knowledgeable.

Capt. Adam MAITLAND,
