Glasgow City Council Education Department, 40 John Street, Glasgow G1 1JL

OS Grid Ref: NS 594653



The Memorial was originally located in the Education Department Offices at 129 Bath Street, Glasgow and for the last seventeen years it has languished in a basement in Cochrane Street, Glasgow. Thankfully it has now been refurbished and has got pride of place in the reception area of 40 John Street.

Unveiling of War Memorial
From Evening Times 6/11/1919
(An almost identical report appears in the Glasgow Herald of 7/11/1919)

“Glasgow Education Authority Memorial to teachers.
At a meeting of Glasgow Education Authority this afternoon, the Memorial to teachers and other servants of School Boards, erected on the North Wall of the Board Room Landing in the offices at 129 bath Street, was unveiled by Sir Charles C Copland, Chairman. Sir Charles stated that 700 teachers and other servants of school boards now within the education area of Glasgow enlisted in the Forces.
Of the 82 teachers and other servants who had fallen in the War, eight (?) obtained military decorations, namely four Military Crosses, 3 Distinguished Conduct Medals and three Military Medals.
Amongst the names on the memorial was one lady, Miss Warnock of Tureen Street School, who was a VAD Nurse and who died in an hospital in France. The 82 names comprised 66 teachers, 4 officials, 6 school attendance officers and 6 janitors.”

“Hello and asking for help from an Aussie bloke. Lt John Blair (a doctor) was my grandma's fiancé. Unfortunately he DOW late in the war and in the end my Scottish grandma met my grandad from the 42nd Bn AIF in Edinburgh. She became a war bride and so here I am. I am a specialist in AIF but asking my UK chums if they have any further knowledge on this mysterious man or his brother - both of them so sadly, so sadly died at the close of the war.
In 1901 they lived at Main St, West Kilbride, Ayrshire, Scotland with parents Hector and Catherine and Siblings Frank, William, Alex, James and Ritchie.
John was born c1887. All from Ayrshire.

Thank you for your email and the information about John Blair. Yes, this is indeed “our” John Blair. The family story is that he was a doctor – but teacher makes more sense, my grandmother was also a teacher. Perhaps John was studying to become a doctor, or was intending to – I guess we will never know now. The story of how John came into our family tree is this:
“Our grandmother, Eleanor Mary Henderson (born 28 December 1887) attended Edinburgh University and graduated MA in 1910. She became a school teacher. Somewhere along the way she met John Blair and they were engaged to be married. They wrote to each other during the war and I have the last letter that he wrote to her, dated 9 October 1918 and postmarked 10 October. At the time she was living in Crofthill Avenue, Uddingston, Lanarkshire, even though she came from Edinburgh. I think she was teaching at Uddingston. John’s last letter tells (in a clear understatement) “Well, I haven’t been very well lately” and how he had been operated on the day before (on 8 October) for shrapnel wounds to the stomach and that he would be there for a few more days but hoped to “go down to the base” in a few days. Of course, he died just three days after writing the letter. The letter was written from “Australian CCS, BEF, France.”
Grandma kept many items of John’s – photographs, his letter, one of the DLI badges that he wore on his collar as part of his uniform and a book that he sent her called “The Wipers Times”. She kept his letter and photos tied up in a red ribbon for the remainder of her life. After the war she travelled to Belgium to see his grave and took photos of it – it was marked with a simple cross back then, but now it is one of the standard white headstones used in military cemeteries. Grandma also kept her train ticket from that visit. The photos include his graduation photo from Edinburgh University, the grave photos, some casual photos of both John and Eleanor (I guess the ones of her were ones that he had with him which were returned to her after he died) and some formal photos taken of him in uniform. Grandma was also sent an “In Memoriam” card which has photos and details of both John and Hector inside.
What became of Eleanor? She had a brother, Robert Martin Henderson, who also enlisted during WWI – he became friends with an Australian soldier, William Charles Kelly. William stayed with the family in Edinburgh while on leave and after the war he studied at Heriot Watt College in Edinburgh. He and Eleanor clearly became friends, as they wrote to each other for years after he returned to Australia (at the end of 1919) and then in 1924 she came out to Australia and they were married. They had three children. Eleanor died in Sydney, NSW in 1973. She clearly never forgot John Blair.”
Regards,
Catriona Kelly (Grand-daughter)

David Laurence Bell
School Board Clerk, Army Pensioner, (Married to Christina Helen Craig) died 12/05/1919, age 34 years, at the Victoria Infirmary, Glasgow (Usual residence 58 Prince Albert Street, Glasgow).
Cause of death, General Tuberculosis, Pyloric Ulcer.
He is on the Glasgow RoH as Pte. Gordon Highlanders and there is a medal card for David L. Bell Pte. 268898 Royal Highlanders and Pte. 235702 Gordon Highlanders but no sign of him on CWGC or SNWM under either service number.
His Army Pension record exists and confirms he was discharged from the Army as unfit for service in September 1918 because he was suffering from Chronic Nephritis (inflammation of the kidneys). It is possible this man is a Non-Comm.

Glasgow University Biography

Robert Munro Cameron was born on 10 September 1887 in Dailly, Ayrshire to Donald Cameron, a school board offer, and his wife, Lily Bell.

In 1906, Robert came to Glasgow to train for the teaching profession. He studied concurrently for an Arts degree at the University, and for a teaching qualification at the Glasgow Provincial Training College, now the University of Strathclyde. His University subjects included Latin, Logic and Moral Philosophy, and he graduated as Master of Arts on 8 June 1909. Several weeks later, on 30 June, Robert completed his course at the Glasgow Provincial Training College to earn the Teacher’s General Certificate, which qualified him to teach in primary schools, with additional qualifications to teach singing, drawing, woodwork and physical exercises. He subsequently held teaching posts at Canning Place Public School in Glasgow from 2 September – 18 November 1909, and at Calder Street Public School in Govan from 19 November 1909.

During the First World War, Robert served as Lance Corporal with the 6th Cameron Highlanders: Machine Gun Section. He died of wounds sustained in action on 30 May 1916, his bravery described by a contemporary press cutting as follows:

"During the attack he displayed courage and determination when ordered to carry a position occupied by the enemy on his right flank. Through his successful efforts the company was able to proceed with the advance and though wounded he continued to render valuable assistance."

Lance Corporal Robert Munro Cameron is buried in Bethune Town Cemetery. He is remembered in the Roll of Honour of the Glasgow Provincial Committee for the Training of Teachers.

DuRuvigny's RoH
Clendinning, Thomas Henry, Captain 52nd Lowland Divisional Cyclist Coy., Army Cyclist Corps, eldest son of Thomas Henry Clendinning of 138 Darnley street, Pollokshields, Glasgow by his wife, Minnie daughter of the late Henry Jackson; born Moy, Co. Tyrone 11 May 1886; educated Strathbungo High Grade School, Glasgow; Glasgow University and the Royal Technical College; was a Teacher in the Govan Parish School Board; joined the 2nd (Volunteer) Bn. Highland Light Infantry in 1900; was mobilized on the outbreak of the European War 4 Aug 1914; obtained a commission as 2nd Lieut. 52nd Lowland Divisional Cyclist Coy., Divisional Mounted Troops, 28 April 1915; was promoted Lieutenant and Captain 1st Jan 1916; served with the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force at Gallipoli from Aug. to Oct. 1915, after which he was invalided home; joined his unit in Egypt in March 1916, being given command of a Cyclist Coy. 22 Oct. following and was killed in action at the Battle of Gaza, 19 April 1917. A General wrote “He did a lot of soldiering and training with me and I had a very high appreciation of his character and ability. He was one of the most reliable men I ever worked with and a sound soldier of the highest soldierly principles,” and a brother officer: “When the fighting commenced the Cyclist Coy. led by Capt. Clendinning was almost immediately in the thick of it. He was killed leading his company in a charge and I am sure his coolness and courage during the fighting were responsible for the excellent work done that day. He was admired by us all for his strength of character, devotion to duty and for possessing all those qualities required to make an ideal soldier and a leader of men. He paid the full price, fearlessly doing his duty at the head of his company.” Another brother officer also wrote, “He fell at the head of his company as he led them in a charge on a Turkish position. They took the trench, but Capt. Clendinning paid the price. He was always so keen that his company should do well in action that I am sure the knowledge of their success would repay him for his sacrifice. He is a big loss to his company and also to this battalion, to which he has been attached for the last nine months. We valued him both as a fine officer and a good comrade” and one of his men wrote to a friend at home, “Let me say that Capt. T.H.C. was splendid; he led his company into action absolutely fearless and proved himself a man. The Cyclist Coy. had to take a redoubt and they took it but at a cost.”
