Hi
I have just been reading a memoir of someone born near Montrose in Scotland - who also served in WWI.  It identifies the county as 'Forfarshire'. 

This must have been the county's name at the time - and Forfar remains the 'county town' of Angus.  In fairness to Major Graham, might he have identified the county as Forfarshire and it was transcribed incorrectly as Fifeshire?
Best regards
Caroline
