Unto the memory of Oswald Carr, Captain in the Royal Artillery. Fourth son of Ralph Carr of Dunston Hill, and Elizabeth, his wife. Throughout the campaign of 1857-60 he served in China, and was prominently engaged in the capture of Canton. In the year 1868 in the colony of New Zealand, whilst advancing with the colonial forces against insurgent natives, he was killed in action near the River Ruaki-Turi on the 8th of August aged 31 years and 11 months. By the Christian gentleness and uprightness of his mind he was beloved and lamented by his fellow-colonists and by the friendly natives of New Zealand even as he was most dear in the home and country of his birth. The Lord knoweth the days of the Upright and their inheritance shall be forever. Ps XXXVII v18
