About the memorial: The IWM Register has the former and present addresses the wrong way around for this one. It was formerly at Cecil Street and is now at Oakfield Avenue. See Scottish War Memorials Project link for details and 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.
