The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is located on the 80 hectare Garscube Campus at the Northwest boundary of the city, four miles from the main University at Gilmorehill. The School was founded in 1862 and gained independent Faculty status in 1969. The School has a 190 hectare commercial farm and research centre at Cochno, 15 minutes from the Garscube Campus (5 miles north).
The memorial is situated in the main building and is inscribed as follows:
IN MEMORY OF GRADUATES,
STUDENTS AND STAFF OF THE
GLASGOW VETERINARY COLLEGE
WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES
IN THE TWO WORLD WARS
1939 – 1945
Many thanks to Caroline Hutchison for allowing me access to the building.
