A tablet commemorates Lieutenant  James Charles Roberts who died from a wound received in the Battle of Pink Hill in Rensburg South Africa in 1900.

The unveiling of the tablet was preceded by a church parade which included the Murchison Brass band and was well attended by the Murchison troop. There was a large congregation at the unveiling service with many people being unable to gain admission to the church.
