It was Brett who told me it was there, I just went and photographed it. Looks like it's been over-zealously cleaned through the years, I assume that's what the markings on the plaque have been caused by.

My write-up on Dr Hall is probably too long to put on this forum, but below are his medals, one military and the other a prize from St Mungo's College in Glasgow. They are perhaps the only surviving relics of his life.
