East Kilbride Branch Royal British Legion, 7 Bosfield Place, East Kilbride G74 4DY

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 637552



www.britishlegion.org.uk





The plaque, located in the main entrance, is inscribed as follows:

BRITISH LEGION SCOTLAND
GLASGOW & DISTRICT AREA H.Q. BRANCH
TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN MEMORY OF
OUR COMRADES OF THIS BRANCH WHO MADE
THE SUPREME SACRIFICE

“To You From Failing Hands We Throw The Torch Be Yours To Hold It High”

“At The Going Down Of The Sun And In The Morning We Will Remember Them”

In the bottom right hand corner of the plaque there is an inscription HENSHAW EDINBURGH.

This company is still in existence, at Russell Road, Edinburgh www.charles-henshaw.com , however they no longer manufacture commemorative plaques.
Unfortunately they do not appear to have kept the records of past orders.
