I tried to write this in the post that contains Dunne's grave, but it is locked and no replies allowed.
I am just back from Rome and after a few hours of searching (and many "midgy" bites as we say in Scotland) I found Dunne's grave.
Many thanks for Admin posting the picture and location of grave in Rome.
Still in excellent condition! I visit graveyards a lot to find the AZW veterans but this one was a real tester.

Out of interest, Warnford had been Mentioned-in-despatches during the Ninth Frontier war and left the Army after the Zulu War to reside in South Africa. He was the Paymaster of Dick's Kaffrarian Levies in the Gun War 1880-81.
