Kent Road Public School c. 1916.



Kent Road runs left to right across the photograph and the road leading north on the right is Claremont Street.

The school was designed by William Landless (who also designed John Street School) and built in 1885. It was one of the Glasgow School Board's first secondary schools, originally known as Higher Grade Schools. Kent Road and the other Higher Grade schools (John Street, City, Whitehill and Woodside) were strategically placed to make sure that every child in the Board area had the opportunity to continue in education beyond the age of 13. This building was demolished in 1968 to make way for the new Woodside Secondary School. Reproduced with the permission of Glasgow City Council, Libraries Information and Learning.

The Memorial is housed in Hillhead High School, 22-44 Oakfield Avenue, Glasgow G12 8LJ

QUI PROCUL HINC: QUI ANTE DIEM PERIIT: SED MILES. SED PRO PATRIA.

“A man who perished far away, before his time, but as a soldier and for his country.”

Many thanks to Jim Lynch, Head Janitor and Doreen Dalrymple, Office Manager, for allowing me access to Hillhead High School.

This postcard I recently obtained shows the memorial in its original location, and in a very different design to what it looks like now.
