||Joseph Moorhouse was commissioned from the ranks, joining the
Madras Artillery in 1768. He was killed, aged 47, leading an
assault on the Pettah Gate at Bangalore during the 3rd Mysore
War (1790-1792). Mortally wounded, he lies in the centre of
the scene, supported by Captain Douglas of the 74th
(Highland) Regiment. Others include the second-in-command,
Major-General William Medows, riding a brown horse to the
right, and Captains Wight, Wynch and Burn in the centre.
The assault on the Pettah Gate proved successful and the
enemy was routed. Tipu Sultan, the ruler of the State of
Mysore, was forced back to his fortress capital of
Seringapatam where, after a few months, peace was signed.
