In the Church of St Bartholomew the Less (the chapel for St Bartholomew's Hospital).

HIS FORMER MEDICAL CONTEMPORARIES
AT ST BARTHOLOMEW'S HOSPITAL HAVE SET UP THIS TABLET
TO KEEP IN MEMORY THE BRIGHT EXAMPLE OF
ARTHUR JERMYN LANDON
SURGEON ARMY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT,
WHO WHILE CONTINUING TO DRESS THE WOUNDED
AMID A SHOWER OF BULLETS IN THE ACTION OF MAJUBA HILL
WAS IN TURN MORTALLY WOUNDED.
HIS IMMEDIATE REQUEST TO HIS ASSISTANTS
"I AM DYING DO WHAT YOU CAN FOR THE WOUNDED"
WAS CHARACTERISTIC OF HIS UNSELFISH DISPOSITION.
HIS HABITUAL LIFE WAS EXPRESSED IN THE SIMPLE GRANDEUR OF HIS DEATH
HE WAS BORN AT BRENTWOOD, ESSEX. 29TH JUNE 1851
DIED TWO DAYS AFTER THE ACTION
AT MOUNT PROSPECT, SOUTH AFRICA. 1ST MARCH 1881
