|I wonder if this was originally in an Indian church, say in the 82nd Punjabi's depot town and moved here after Indian Independence? I've seen a plauqe like this before in an Edinburgh cemetery for a Salvesen family member who died whilst serving in the Indian Army and it looked out of place compared to the other plaques.
Date of Death: 11/03/1915
Regiment/Service: 82nd Punjabis
Grave Reference: I. A. 21.

Captain Clerk's father was in the Indian Civil Service and the address above is in England but the Clerk family came from Penicuik.
