This memorial is situated in the Royal Highland fusiliers Museum in Glasgow. It is on display in an area which is not open to the public. My thanks to the staff for permission to photograph it.

It is rather long, and the corridor rather narrow, so that is the reason for the rather poor photo. I also had to make do with my camera phone as I did not have my regular camera with me.
