"Corporal Tom Fleming
A great soldier
Erected by
C.O.
Col. Walker-Naddell
JP. DL.
Mc. ERD. QHS. Lst. J
Officers and Ranks
304"

It seems there's an interesting story behind this stone The Colonel Walker-Naddell is in all likelihood Alexander Walker-Naddell. He apparently had a distinguished medical career, but at some point invented his service in the Commandos in WW2.
