That is indeed a most unusual headstone! Thank you for showing it. Is it unusual for a headstone of a Private to be erected by both the officers and other ranks of his regiment? I would be interested in knowing the identity of the rocks used in the surrounds and for the inscribed part. Something local, perhaps? Also, I could not make out the identity of the Hussars regiment, while the year of death is given as 1909, not 1901.
Regards
Brett

PS Like Baden Powell (of this forum, not the ABW B-P), my eyesight is now less that perfect, so I hope that I have not made any blunders in my peering at McKenzie's memorial.
