A Fife First World War soldier has finally been honoured on the memorial in his home town alongside his brothers.
Private John Ferguson is presumed to have fallen under German bombardment in France in 1916.
He is remembered with honour at the Loos Memorial as a soldier without a grave but until recently was not listed among the fallen of the First World War on Tayport War Memorial.
A service was held on Wednesday to rededicate the memorial following the installation of a plaque for the Royal Scots soldier, close to the names of three of his four brothers who also died in action.
It followed research by local woman Jill Lewis, who discovered Pte Ferguson’s omission.
Raymond Hamlyn, president of the Royal British Legion Scotland in Tayport, said the branch ordered the plaque to ensure Pte Ferguson was given the recognition he deserved.
The son of Andrew Ferguson, of Pond Lane, he was born in Dalgety Bay but is believed to have moved to Tayport as a child.
He worked at the James Ferguson foundry in Tay Street until he enlisted in April 1915.
Pte Ferguson’s father died in 1919 leaving only his youngest brother, who was a teenager during the war. His older brothers Robert, William and James also fell in action.
According to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Pte Ferguson was killed on May 11 1916 during the Hohenzollern Redoubt.
The 13th Battalion Royal Scots were holding the line near the German stronghold at Auchy-les-Mines when a terrific bombardment opened on their trenches.
Most of the staff were killed or wounded in a direct hit on the HQ dugout.
As the German infantry moved in on the Royal Scots positions the cannonade swelled in fury, according to the records, and trenches and dugouts became a chaos of tumbling earth under the cascade of shells and mortar.
It is presumed Pte Ferguson fell in this action.
Researchers tried to trace any family members still living locally but without success.
