I believe that J F Thom on the Kirkcaldy Rugby Football Club is:
Captain James Flockhart Thom, MC
Fife & Forfar Yeomanry attached to the Machine Gun Corps
Killed in action at Irbid, Palestine 26 September 1918
Buried in what is now Damascus Commonwealth War Cemetery
Son of Mr RD Thom and his wife Mary Gilmour Leburn, Pitlochy, Gateside
Educated at Merchiston Castle Schooo 1907-1910
A keen sportsman he played in the Cupar Lawn Tennis Tournament in 1913 and occasionally played cricket for Cupar.
He had worked for sometime in the office of Falkland Estate before going to Argentina.
At the time of the outbreak of war James Thom was travelling in South America and, after an arduous journey back, enlisted with the Fife & Forfar Yeomanry in January 1915.
There was a memorial window in the Edenshead Church of Scotland, Gateside (now a Private house); listed on memorials at Strathmiglo and Merchiston Castle School.
