The hymn from which this inscription comes,
The Hour of My Departure's Come, first appeared in 'Scottish Psalms and Paraphrases', 1781.
The hour of my departure's come;
I hear the voice that calls me home:
At last, O Lord! let trouble cease,
And let thy servant die in peace.
James McWalter came from Inverness and served with the Anson Battalion Royal Naval Division. He was killed in action on 4 June 1915 during the Third Battle of Krithia.
