Here is his another memorial to him on the family headstone in Dean (Western) Cemetery, Edinburgh



A closer shot of the inscriptions:




And a close up of the plaque that looks out of place.




Given Capt Salvesen doesn't have a plaque in St Giles I wonder if this red plaque was originally erected in India in the garrison church of the 82nd Punjabis and moved to Edinburgh Post-1947?


Here is the SNWM details for Capt Salvesen:

Surname SALVESEN
Firstname Frederick Malcolm Ross
Date Death 22/12/1919
Other 82nd Punjabis.
SNWM roll THE INDIAN ARMY.
Rank Capt
Theatre of death India.

Unfortunately the CWGC was down when I posted this and Lt Salvesen doesn't appear on the SNWM database although another two Salveson officers do appear, one killed at Gretna in 1915.
