Your University, One Photo at a Time

1939-1945

1939-1945

In 1948 the University of Glasgow erected memorial tablets in the University Chapel to commemorate those associated with the University who died in the Second World War. The tablets are located to the East of the stalls on both sides and contain the names of the 452 members of the University who perished in WWII. The tablets above are from the South side of the Chapel and contains the names from Adam to McCallum. You can see a larger version here.

There’s more on the Chapel on the University of Glasgow Story website, including a Roll of Honour detailing all the names on the six tablets.
