Mac Ruttan of Ottawa tells us of a Captain Jonathan Pearce of the Royal Artillery who was serving in the garrison at Gilbraltar. He was accidently shot and killed by his batman who was subsequently exonerated of all blame by a court of inquiry. The authorities notified Capt. Pearce’s next-of-kin and asked what inscription they would like engraved on his headstone. The family, having only been advised that he died in the course of duty, replied with remarkable, albeit possibly unfortunate, insight that it would like the inscription to read: “Well Done Thou Good And Faithful Servant.”
