Markinch War Memorial

The plaque on this side, nearest the road, commemorates the First World War. The individuals’ names are set into the stone plinths surmounting the surrounding walls.

The plaque on the far side commemorates the Second World War and incorporates the names of the fallen of that war, including a woman from the ATS – perhaps a ferry pilot.

Edited to add: I’ve now had a chance to look at the Scottish War Memorials Project and it says that Betsy L Wyse was a private in the Auxiliary Territorial Service.
