From the Highland Light Infantry Memorial to the Tower

From the Highland Light Infantry Memorial to the TowerAnother view of the University of Glasgow, from behind the Highland Light Infantry Memorial in Kelvingrove Park. The soldier atop the plinth, which was erected in 1906, looks on across the Prince of Wales Bridge, towards the Monument to Thomas Carlyle and the University of Glasgow. The bronze letters on the statue reads: TO THE MEMORY OF THE OFFICERS, NON-COMMISSIONED OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE HIGHLAND LIGHT INFANTRY WHO FELL IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN WAR 1900-01-02. ERECTED BY COMRADES AND FRIENDS. The other side of the plinth recounts the names of the fallen.
