Update for the Post above to Colour Sergeant Frederick Derrett and the missing letters on the stone. 7 ?
After leaving the Royal Scots Fusiliers Frederick Derrett joined the 7th Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers.
The missing letters and complete inscription I think would be:-
7:L R V or 7:L R Vol
Also his Attestation Papers when he enlisted with the 21st Foot (later renamed Royal Scots Fusiliers) show him born 1838 which would make him 82 when he died. Not 86 as is on the stone.
