Only five Victoria Crosses were awarded to Fifers during World War One.  This exhibition tells the story of one - Robert Dunsire - and it follows his journey from the coalfields of East Fife to his death in 1916 after the Battle of Loos, and the act of bravery that won him the very highest award that his country can bestow.

Heroism, community and remembrance are celebrated in this exhibition, which is curated by Methil Heritage Friends, assisted by Fife Cultural Trust and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  For more details, including opening times please visit the Fife Cultural Trust web-site: www.onfife.com
