Memorial Window is situated opposite the vestry door within Kelvinside Hillhead Church.




This was presented by Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Teacher in memory of their son, Lieut. William George Teacher, in 1917.
It was designed and executed by Messrs. Meikle & Sons, and is emblematic of the triumph of Right and Justice over the powers of Evil.
