Grave of Hugh Stewart Cochrane V.C.

"For conspicuous gallantry near Jhansi, on the 1st of April, 1858, when No. 1 Company of the Regiment was ordered to take a gun, in dashing forward at a gallop, under a heavy musketry and artillery fire, driving the enemy from the gun, and keeping possession of it till the Company came up. Also for conspicuous gallantry in attacking the rear-guard of the enemy, when he had three horses shot under him in succession. Despatch from Major-General Sir Hugh Henry Rose, G.C.B., dated 23rd April, 1858."
