A smaller plaque for WW2 is mounted underneath The construction of a hospital to serve as a war memorial was the idea of the Marchioness of Graham (whom later became the Duchess of Montrose). She laid the foundation stone in 1921 and the hospital was officially opened in 1922. The hospital was funded solely by voluntary subscriptions
