The Western Club, 32 Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow G1 3AB

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 591653



Founded in 1825, the Club has maintained the first class standards of service, comfort and individual charm which have drawn loyal membership from businessmen and women throughout the years.
From its founding in 1825, the Club joined with the Junior Club (founded in 1868), the New Club (founded in 1869) and the ladies Kelvin Club (founded in 1897). In more recent times the Club has also become the adopted home of former members of the R.N.V.R. Club (Scotland).
History also records that the purpose of the Club was to furnish its members with cheap and well cooked dinners and "wine free of death in the bottle".

The club has a WW1 and a WW2 memorial both located in the stairway on the first and second landings.



The WW1 memorial is inscribed as follows:

John

Many thanks for posting this memorial. I was just looking into Allan Gilmour earlier this evening. He was the brother-in-law of William Anderson VC also listed.

Thanks

Adam
