Your University, One Photo at a Time

1914-1918

1914-1918

On June 28th, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, was assassinated in Sarajevo along with his wife, Duchess Sophie. On June 28th, 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed.

Between those two dates 5 years apart, 4,506 members of the Glasgow University community served in the First World War, 761 of whom did not return. The fallen are remembered on memorial tablets in the east end of the Memorial Chapel.

Compared to yesterday’s photo of this part of the Chapel, this time I haven’t played with the colours of the photo.
