O God the heathen are come into thine inheritance thy ???
people have they defiled, and made Jerusalem an heap of stones
The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto
the fowls of the air and the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the land.
Their blood they shed like water on every side of Jerusalem
and there was no man to bury them. Psalm LXXXIX, Verse 1 ???

This Tablet was erected by their brother officers as a mark of their
affectionate esteem and sincere regret for their sad and untimely end
