Not sure if this is the correct forum for this memorial.

The following article has been extracted from East Renfrewshire’s Heritage Collection at
http://www.portaltothepast.co.uk/heritage/heritage_exhibitions/world-war1/world-war-one-memorials.htm

The Lieutenants’ Duff Memorial Hall, Busby.
A prominent personal memorial to individuals lost in the war is the Duff Memorial Hall in Busby, where the community library is located.
A partner in a Glasgow jewellery firm, William Duff was a notable member of the Busby community and was the Session Clerk at Busby West Church from 1894 to 1930.
His son was a Lieutenant in the 7th Battalion Cameronians and was only twenty-three years old when he died at Gallipoli in 1915.
At the start of 1919, Mr. And Mrs. Duff announced that they had bought vacant ground at the corner of Main Street, so that a hall could be built in memory of their son.
They gifted £5000 worth of war bonds to the trustees of the Busby District Library: half was to be used for the building and equipment and the other half was to be used by the trustees as an endowment fund.
Sadly, in August of the same year, the Duff’s other son, John, also a lieutenant, died in Burma of pneumonia. As a result, it was decided that the building would be known as the Lieutenants’ Duff Memorial Hall.



The hall has three rooms which can be hired for various functions.
Within one of the rooms there is a memorial plaque and three framed pictures commemorating the two brothers and those members of Busby YMCA who served in WW1.

Details of the brothers can be found on the Busby Parish Church Memorial

William's portrait is on the left with John's on the right. In the centre is the Roll of Honour of the Members of Busby YMCA.

John, yes, I think given the nature of the memorial it should be in the 'Other' section.

Thanks for posting so many detailed photographs.

Kind regards

Adam
