Charles Fox Canning
Birth: 1782
Death: 1815

Lt.-Colonel of the 3rd Regiment of Foot Guards. Killed in action at Waterloo . An excellent╩inscription - 'Near his big chief, on many a trying day / He braved each peril of the deadly fray / and when on Waterloo's ensanguined plain / He fell in glory midst the glorious slain / Unmov'd by aught to selfish minds allied / "Thank Heaven! My Leader lives" he said and died'.
