In memory of
A grenadier of the Ninth Regiment
of Hants Militia, who died of a
violent fever, contracted by drinking
small beer when hot, the 12th of May,
1769, aged 26 years....
Here sleeps in peace a Hampshire Grenadier
Who caught his death by drinking cold small beer.
Soldiers, be wise from his untimely fall,
And when ye're hot, drink strong or none at all.
Ω Birth
