Sgt Masterson - 2/87th Regt of Foot, Battle of Barossa 05 Mar 1811

Sgt Masterson is credited with capturing the first ever French 'Eagle' from the 8th Regiment at the Battle of Barossa on 5th Mar 1811.

For his heroic efforts he was made an Ensign and eventually made the rank of Captain. Thereafter the trail goes cold.

So - the question. Does anyone know where he is burried?
