Familiar with the aspect of Death whom they had confonted in so many battles
from which they always emerged victorious they met His last inevitable call
here with intrepidity Falling on the 14th of September 1857 in the faithful
discharge of their duty. This Monument was erected by their Officers and
fellow soldiers of the 1st Regiment European Bengal Fusiliers in their
remembrance which is part of its glory. The rest remains with the Lord."
