About the memorial: A new memorial plaque listing the names of local soldiers killed in the Boer War has been unveiled at Cupar’s Adamson Hospital. The original plaque - Cupar’s first war memorial WMO 259179 - went missing when renovation work was carried out at the hospital a few years ago. Dowager Lady Gilmour performed the unveiling last Friday, with the Gilmour family having provided funding towards the original memorial. Invited guests included representatives from Fife and Forfar Yeomanry Association, Cupar branch of the Royal British Legion (Scotland), Cupar Community Council, Adamson Hospital League of Friends, Cupar Heritage, Edenvilla and Bank Street medical practices, NHS staff and the Rev Jan Steyn of St John’s Church. The original plaque was situated near the old entrance to the hospital. When it was discovered by the League of Friends it had gone missing during the extensive modernisation project, the matter was pursued by community council secretary Douglas Provan. Research by Mr Provan and Ian Copland of Cupar Heritage confirmed the 13 names of those listed on the plaque, which is now located in the reception area of the hospital.
