Monument to Sir Ronald Ross

On the left panel:

IN THE SMALL
LABORATORY
70 YARDS TO THE
SOUTH EAST OF THIS GATE
SURGEON MAJOR
RONALD ROSS, I.M.S.,
IN 1898 DISCOVERED
THE MANNER IN WHICH
MALARIA IS CONVEYED
BY MOSQUITOES.

On the right panel:

THIS DAY RELENTING GOD
HATH PLACED WITHIN MY HAND
A WONDROUS THING; AND  GOD
BE PRAISED. AT HIS COMMAND.

SEEKING HIS SECRET DEEDS
WITH TEARS AND TOILING
I FIND THY CUNNING SEED
O MILLION-MURDERING DEATH

I KNOW THIS LITTLE THING
A MYRIAD MEN WILL SAVE.
O DEATH, WHERE IS THY STING?
THY VICTORY, O GRAVE?
