On 16 September 1918 Corporal David Hunter and the six men of his HLI platoon began a desperate struggle for survival near the village of Moeuvres in Picardie, France. Exactly one hundred years later, on 16 September 2018, the Heritage Trust and DAFC, along with the people of Fife and of Moeuvres, came together at East End Park to commemorate the achievements of “The Seven Heroes of Moeuvres” which led to Corporal Hunter being awarded the Victoria Cross and the other members of his platoon the Distinguished Conduct Medal.
Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust has installed fifteen large display panels in the concourse of the Norrie McCathie Stand. These illustrate notable record breakers from DAFC’s history, from the club’s first international player (Andy Wilson), through the youngest-ever first team player (Alex Edwards) to the most consecutive shut-outs by a goalkeeper (Ian Westwater & Sean Murdoch).
On 1 July 2018, the 102nd anniversary of the start of the Battle of the Somme, a wreath was laid at the McCrae`s Battalion cairn in Contalmaison, France, in memory of the DAFC players (Davie Izatt & Jimmy Morton) and supporters who served with McCrae`s Battalion (16th Royal Scots) and who died that day.
