Memorial at Dunkeld Cathedral, Scotland :

"In memory ofthe Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, andPrivate Soldiers
of the
42d Royal Highlanders -The Black Watch - 
who fell in war from the creation of the Regiment
to the close of the Indian Mutiny, 1859.
The ten Independent Companies of the Preacadan  Duch,
or Black Watch, were formed into a Regiment
on the 25th October 1739, and the
first muster took place in May 1740,
in a field between Taybridge and Aberfeldy.

Here, 'mong the hills that nursed each hardy Gael,
Our votive marble tells the soldier's tale;
Art's magic power each perished friend recalls,
And heroes haunt these old Cathedral walls.

Erected by the Officers of the Corp.
