Located just to the left of two of the church's three WW1 memorial stained glass windows.

I think this is the first memorial I've seen that mentions specifically the Boer war and two world wars all together.
Obviously made some time after WW2?

The Royals Scots Greys memorial on Princes Street in Edinburgh has plaques for Boer War, Great War and Second World War but they were all cast separately, not on one plaque like this.

Aditionally I think Aberlady in East Lothian is unique in Scotland in that a Boer War memorial was re-used for both World Wars.
