Location: Glasgow Cathedral

The four Anderson brothers from Glasgow who lost their lives in the First World War are commemorated with a bronze plaque in the Cathdral.

Until we get a proper photograph of it, here are some screenshots from the BBC Centenary programme on 4th August 2014.

They are commemorated on other memorials in the city and across Scotland, especially Lt Col. William Anderson VC.

No wonder I thought these photos were already on the forum ..... I've had these for years and I think the reason for not posting them sooner was that I wasn't particularly happy with the quality of them.

I'll quite happily delete them if better copies can be sourced.

In the meantime, here is the memorial!

Iíve only just noticed that against each of the names there are their cap badges on each side of the frame. Except for Lt Col Anderson who has his HLI cap badge on the left and a VC on the right.

Regards
