Thanks to Alastair Dinsmor for the photograph.
"On 11 November 1921, a bronze War Memorial tablet, bearing the names of the 173 Glasgow Police officers who were killed or missing, was unveiled in the crypt of Glasgow Cathedral. Sergeant John McAulay, representing the force, laid a wreath on the memorial. The officers and men of the force, together with the City dignitaries, then marched from the Cathedral to the Central Police Office, Turnbull Street, where an exact replica of the Cathedral memorial was unveiled on the wall of the police office, within the quadrangle. This memorial is now in the Glasgow Police Museum within the former Central Police Office. "
As you will see we need more photos of it. Here is the reply I got from Alastair. "Yes, we have the memorial in our museum together with an additional 1939-45 added panel.
Unfortunately, it is sited on a wall in a narrow corridor, so photos of it are very difficult and do not show the names. You are welcome to come and see it and use your photographic skills
I am on duty in the museum on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (10am - 4.30pm). Let me know when you plan to visit.
Alastair Dinsmor
GPHS"
I don't know when I will next be in Glasgow so if any member there can photograph it, it looks well worth a visit.

Just a wee update.
Glasgow Police Museum to close

The curator of Glasgow's Police Museum has spoken of his "devastation" after being given just over three weeks to close it.

Former police inspector Alastair Dinsmor has been told to vacate the Turnbull Street premises and put the collection into storage by December 8.

The Glasgow Police Museum have found a new home in Bell street, Glasgow but they reckon that it will be at least late summer of 2009 before they can re-open

From Alastair posting on Hidden Glasgow.

"Hi Folks,
At long last I have had an opportunity to read your kind words about the closure of the Glasgow Police Museum on 11 November 2008 and our departure from our 'spiritual home' (the Old Central Police Office building) on 8 December 2008.
When the Scottish Courts Service realised the cost of upgrading and maintaining the old building to 'Crown Standards' they refused to take on the building and so Glasgow City Council retained ownership. As The Glasgow Police Museum would have been the only occupier when the court closed and we were on a concessionary rent anyway, they decided that we should leave and they have sealed up the building. It is a 'B' listed building and they say it 'will be maintained within GCC financial constraints'.
At the time we closed, we (The Glasgow Police Heritage Society) intimated our interest in the building and put our idea for a Glasgow Police Heritage Centre (on the lines of Inverary Jail) to a number of GCC Councillors and officials. The details were well received and all agreed that such an attraction would be an asset to the City and, being sited in the east side of the City, would augment the Peoples' Palace. Obviously a sustainable business plan and options appraisal (feasabilty study) would have to be carried out......money would also be the biggest issue.
It is the intention of the GPHS to follow up on this idea once we have established ourselves at our new venue at (First Floor) 30 Bell Street, Merchant City, Glasgow G1 1LG (phone: 552 1818).
I can report that our work to re-build the Glasgow Police Museum at our new premises is well advanced and the assembly of the custom-made display cases which we had in the old museum, is almost complete. After that we will be replacing the former displays and adding new ones, creating a museum I'm sure you will enjoy visiting.
One exhibit that was unable to be replaced on display is the old 1912 Police signal box which we found a few years ago in Fleming Street. The floor of our new premises was judged not able to withstand the one tonne weight of the police box and so sadly we have stored it away for the future.
We hope that we will re-open to the public in June 2009, although an exact date has not been decided upon. The website (http://www.policemuseum.org.uk) and newspapers will report on our re-opening.
We will also be taking part in Open Doors Weekend in September.
Thank you all for your keen interest and complimentary postings and I hope to see you at the new museum when it re-opens."

The other memorial mentioned in the first post in Glasgow Cathedral is still there. We don't have it on the fourm yet.

Many thanks to Alastair Dinsmor, Chairman/Secretary of the Glasgow Police Museum, for providing me with the following information.



For what ever reason, the names of two Special Constables listed above do not appear on the main memorial. Apparently the memorial only listed the names of Regular Policemen.
