I noticed that Sir A. Ava Campbell, Black Watch had his first initial amended on the memorial. I tried finding him on the CWGC register. The nearest I could come up with is this man:

Name: CAMPBELL, Sir ARCHIBALD AUGUSTUS
Initials: A A
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Lieutenant
Regiment/Service: Cameron Highlanders
Unit Text: 6th Bn.
Age: 38
Date of Death: 09/05/1916
Additional information: Brother of Mr. W. A. A. Campbell, of "Malika," Sepani, Orange Free State, South Africa.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: III. G. 15.
Cemetery: VERMELLES BRITISH CEMETERY

I'm not convinced it is him though and I couldn't find this officer on the SNWM which was a surprise since he served in a Scottish regiment.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

Memorial: Carnbee Parish, Fife
Location: by the road leading to Carnbee Parish Church
OS Grid Ref: NO531065
UKNIWM Ref: 57983
Count: WWI=15, WWII=3

From The Scotsman 21-Sep-1920.

    WAR MEMORIALS

    CARNBEE: The unveiling of a war memorial formed part of the divine service in the Parish Church on Sunday. There was a large congregation, presided over by the Rev. T. P. Johnston, senior minister of the parish. Assisting him were the Rev. G. Thompson, junior minister, and the Rev. John Chisholm, of Carnbee U.F. Church. Among those present were Sir Ralph Anstruther and Lady Anstruther, Sir Robert and Lady Lorimer, Mrs Erskine, Grangemuir, &c. A short address was given by the Rev. G. Thompson. The congregation then adjourned to the memorial which stands close to the churchyard gate, where Sir Ralph Anstruther of Balcaskie delivered an appropriate address, and at its close unveiled the column. He said they could truthfully say that when the time of trial came to the people of the country, and none more readily than those of Scotland, subordinated to the public weal; union was strength, and they had their reward. Would they be able to point to a similar united effort for the restoration of prosperity, to a similar sinking of differences, to a similar willingness to deny self, and follow the hard path of duty? He hoped so, and believed that a powerful incentive to such a line of action lay in the example of those whose glorious career they commemorated that day. The memorial was designed by Sir Robert Lorimer, who is a parishioner of Carnbee, and is composed of a pedestal standing on steps, surmounted by a column bearing shields with appropriate charges. Fourteen names are inscribed on the memorial.

Looks like Captain R.E. Anstruther's name was added the following year, taking the name count from 14 to 15 for WWI.

This memorial has been added to the UKNIWM.

Sir Ralph Anstruther was Lord Lieutenant of Fife at the time and died in 1934. He was th 6th Baronet and the 7th was also named Ralph. It would be interesting to know what relation (if any) he was to Capt R E Anstruther.

From The Scotsman 25-Jul-1921.

    DEATH OF SON OF SIR RALPH ANSTRUTHER.

    The death is reported from Nordrach-on-Dee of Captain Robert E. Anstruther, M.C., 1st Black Watch, only son of Sir Ralph W. Anstruther, Bart., of Balcaskie, Fife. On leaving Eton, Captain Anstruther went to Sandhurst, where he carried off the Sword of Honour, the highest award of the college. He obtained a commission in the 1st Black Watch. In August 1914 he went to France, and was wounded at the Battle of the Aisne, when he became one of the first recipients of the Military Cross. He rejoined his battalion in Flanders in January 1915, and was again wounded at Messines. After a long convalescence he was engaged on home service, but active service in the field was his one desire, and again he returned to France in September 1916, where, in command of the 8th Battalion, he was again seriously wounded in June 1917 on the Arras front. On restoration to health he was on service in Ireland and elsewhere. After the Armistice he returned to his old battalion. He was married in the spring of 1919 to Miss de Burgh, daughter of the late Hugo de Burgh, of Ballinapierce, Ireland, and was stationed in Kent. Some months ago he was obliged to seek treatment at Nordrach, but all medical skill proved unavailing, and he died there. His last days were brightened by the birth on 13th June of a son and heir.
