SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF LIEU.COLONEL JOHN STUART WHO FELL AT THE HEAD OF THE 9TH REGIMENT OF INFANTRY IN THE 32ND YEAR OF HIS AGE IN THE BATTLE OF ROLERA ON THE 17TH OF AUGUST 1808 WHILE THE BRITISH ARMY WERE SUCCESSFULLY SUPPORTING THE CAUSE OF PORTUGAL AGAINST THE USURPSION OF FRANCE. HE WAS LOST TO HIS COUNTRY AT A PERIOD OF LIFE WHEREBY ATTAINMENTS AND NATURAL ENDOWMENTS MIGHT HAVE SECURED TO HER BENEFIT THE MOST IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES BUT IT IS TE PRIVATE LOFS (?) THAT THE OFFICERS OF HIS REGIMENT WOULD CHIEFLY DEPLORE IN PAYING THE TRIBUTE OF VENERATION TOHIS BELOVED MEMORY. HE LIVES REVERED IN THE RECOLLECTION OF ALL WHO EVER KNEW HIM BUT THEY ARE ANXIOUS TO TRANSMIT TO LATER AGES. SO THE MEMORIAL OF A DISTINGUISHED EXAMPLE OF WORTH AND EXCELLENCE
