I don't have any pictures of this memorial but while surfing I found this very interesting website which lists those commemorated on it.

UKNIWM Ref No. 5853
The shrine is in the apse on the left hand side of the war memorial building, you can see the exterior of one of the stained glass windows in this picture.
The architect was A. Marshall MacKenzie who was also responsible for the Aberdeen war memorial.
There is a description of the work at:
http://www.bbaf-arts.org.uk/sites/bbaf/art-in-env/artefactdetails.asp?ArtefactNum=178



I don't have information on this memorial but would have thought there's a good chance the stained glass windows are the work of Douglas Strachan who was Aberdeen born and the most prominent stained glass artist of the period. He was also responsible for the windows in the Scottish National War Memorial in Edinburgh Castle.
