A lang way frae Fife, Kilconquhar Kirkyard
The British have often been accused of insularity by Continental commentators, but I'm always struck by the fact that men, and often women, from the smallest villages of Scotland travelled throughout the world to the far-flung outposts of the British Empire. Many never returned. The inscription on this stone reads, "Lieut. Colonel William Adam Anstruther Thomson. Born December 4th 1822. Entered the Bengal Cavalry 1841. Served on the Staff of Sir Charles Napier in the Battles of Meanee and Hyderabad. Commanded the Governor General's Body-Guard in 1848. Died at Calcutta 3rd August 1865."
