The Sinclair Memorial

It is a memorial to John Sinclair M.D., assistant surgeon in the Royal Navy, 1814-1840.
Inside the building are some sculptures NX9675 : Statue of Old Mortality and his pony. Doctor Sinclair won them in a lottery, but the very next day "by a mournful accident", the young man died.
