That's a Highland Light Infantry memorial, not just for Gallipoli.

Thanks Doc for the correction.

I had a quick look through the site you posted. All great stuff. I will need to spend more time going through all the threads.

Thanks

Spotted this rather sad little hand written plaque hanging below the official Dowanhill Memorial.
Wonder how long it has been there?

Nice one Flex

That is a really interesting one. As you say it would be good to know how long it has been there.

It was moved there from Woodlands Rd c 1972. Haven't seen it for many years but I guess it's still there.



I now understand this is incorrect. It was moved but it isn't in the Glasgow Gaelic School any more.

I'm going to try to find out where it is.


I'm told the Woodside War Memorial was moved to Hillhead High School when the two schools were amalgamated.
238 to 127. All in all a good afternoon's work
