Today's Glasgow Evening Times reports that, as part of demolition work to the Hepburn Stand at the above location, "a memorial to Glasgow’s First World War dead was destroyed when the bulldozers started work on the rugby ground"

The article gives little more information.

So the stand itself was a memorial, it'd be good to find out if there was a dedication plaque or anything that survived.
