He was General Manager of GCT during the WW1 years, and the person who did the most to raise the 15th Battalion HLI (The Tramway Battalion).

The memorial for the victims of the Clydebank blitz in Dalnotter Cemetary. Shot in September 2006.
A total of 367 men from the North British Locomotive Company were killed in the first world war one. A large memorial window commemorating this loss was installed in the administration building of the North British Locomotive Company, along with a large bronze plaque listing the names. The window was unveiled by the Prince of Wales on 9 March 1921.
The window originally faced outwards into the quadrangle, but in 1997 was taken out and refurbished, then reinstalled facing into the entrance hallway, overlooking the grand staircase.
Three main figures are depicted: a man at an anvil, a Scottish soldier, and a woman at a lathe, symbolising women's work in the 'Mons' and 'Marne' munitions factories of the Atlas Works.

I have been meaning to go to the Cathedral to take pics of the memorials there for sometime but never got round to it.
