About the memorial: Memorial in the Church of St John the Baptist, Saxmundham, Suffolk commemorating Lieutenant George Long, RN d. 1782. Obelisk with naval trophies above the inscription tablet. Black and white marble. The IWM register wrongly attributes this memorial to the 7 Years War of 1756-63. Not strictly accurate to use the Colonial India option from the drop down menu, but tat it the closest to Ceylon, as it was then called.
