Hunter Memorial Inscription

Hunter Memorial Inscription

This is a close-up of the Hunter Memorial which I featured on Sunday. I was going to use an online translator or something similar to figure out what it says, but they all fell a bit short or didn’t offer Latin-English translation.

The heavily abbreviated version of it is the following:
In memory of brothers William and John Hunter, and then something about natural sciences, surgery, London, being an alumni of Glasgow and the University Museum. Or something in that direction.

If there’s anyone reading this who possesses a working knowledge of Latin, please translate in the comments below. Please? Thank you!
