The 'rough cross' was Lieutenant Paterson's original grave marker, a wooden cross. His mother, touched by his men's inscription, had it repeated on her son's permanent headstone. Lamont Paterson was a Canadian born and bred. He served with an English regiment and to his men was "a very brave British officer".
