Const. Henry Dundas
Regimental No. 2793
Died August 5, 1898
The headboard is incorrect - the force was still the N.W.M.P. when Cst. Dundas died.
From the Annual Report: "A few days after my arrival [at Fort Herchmer, Dawson, on 12th July] Reg. No. 2793, Constable Dundas, was sent down from Stewart River ill with typhoid fever, and after three weeks sickness I regret to record his death on the 5th August. He had had an attack of scurvy during the previous spring."
