Notes on the Geography of Sri Lanka: Colombo: Photo 21
"This tablet is erected by the Ceylon Civil Service in testimony of their respect for the memory of Percival Acland Dyke, for upwards of 45 years a member of the Service, and for the last 38 years of his life the Government Agent of the Northern Province of Ceylon. Known no less for his untiring devotion to the Public Service than for his capacity for administration and the zeal which he displayed in promoting the interests of the people over whom he was placed. He rested from his labours on the 9th October, 1867." Buried in Jaffna.See the Jaffna folder for a picture of Dyke's tomb.
