About the memorial: It was formerly at Cecil Street and is now at Oakfield Avenue. Although the School moved in 1931 (the old school then became Hillhead Primary School) the WW1 memorial did not move until 2011. See Scottish War Memorials Project link for names. 3 polished lacquered Brass Plaques for WW1 on a plain marble slab; also a mahogany board for WW2- on either side are carved panels of oak branches with leaves and acorns: the leaves signify strength and valour, the acorns signify immortality. In the reception area outside the main office there are two identical richly carved seats commemorating WW1. Unfortunately there is no record of the benefactor.
