John Wittiton gravestone

Photo taken June 2010.The inscription is fading fast, so it would be good to have it recorded. The stone is in the middle graveyard, near the gate on to the Paye.

It reads:
His glass is run, his watch is o'er
The boatswain's pipe he'll hear no more.
Secure he lies in death's cold bands,
Till the last trump shall call all hands.

There must be other gravestones in all of Cromarty's graveyards that could be recorded for posterity.
