About the memorial: The only evidence for this memorial is found in a set of eighteen small photographs under glass with frame held by the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre, (ID - 1985.96) A small brass plate on bottom of frame reads 'Johnston Church of Scotland - Springburn - presented by Wm. Renfrew Esq. Vice Pres. 20th March 1934. Photographs of the church, elders, church organ, ministers, James Reid and a War Memorial plaque. The church was at the junction of Springburn Road and Queenshill Street but was destroyed by fire and has been demolished. Indeed Queenshill Street no longer exists. There is a new Springburn Parish Church on Springburn Way on part of the original site. The lengthy account on their website of the construction of the new church refers to the transfer to it of various items from the numerous local churches which it replaced. But there is no mention of the war memorial, and indeed a deliberate decision was taken not to include memorials with names. The photographs on the website show no sign of any memorials on the walls. As the Johnston church building was in any case destroyed by fire, the loss of this memorial must be assumed.
