I can provide further details on most of these men - the Union Bank became part of the Bank of Scotland which then became part of HBOS plc, my current employers.

I have been researching this memorial for some time, and in fact the plaques for the Union Bank are located at my current place of employment.

Moved this to the Glasgow Roll of Honour section as the memorial is contained in a bank building in the city.
