"Sacred to the memory of Lieut. JOHN STIRLING, of the Bombay Army,
Eldest son of William Stirling Esquire, Merchant in Glasgow,
Who, attached to the Cavalry of His Highness the Nizam,
Fell, while gallantly leading as assault against the Fort of Dundhootee,
On the third of January MDCCCXXVIII (1828) aged 23 years.
His remains are interred near the spot where he bravely fought and fell,
And in testimony of the sense entertained by the Nizam's Government of his heroic conduct,
A monument has been raised over his grave at the public expense.

This Cenotaph, is erected by his brother officers of the Nizam's Cavalry,
In testimony of their high esteem of his public and private worth.
MDCCCXXIX (1829)"
