About the memorial: 3 Stained Glass Windows by William Meikle and Sons, with a metal dedication plaque below the central window. Two of the panels are conventional, the central one showing a soldier with Mars the God of war, and on one side of it the classical figure of a blacksmith forging a sword. The third panel is very unconventional, representing a female munitions worker, one of the thousands who replaced the men who went off to fight, working in the 'Mons' and 'Marne' munitions factories of the Atlas Works. The windows also show the crests of the regiments depicted on the large bronze plaque which lists the names of the fallen. The window was unveiled by the Prince of Wales on 9 March 1921. After the liquidation of the North British Locomotive Company in 1961, the building was bought by Glasgow Corporation and used as an annexe of Stow College, until becoming Springburn College of Engineering in 1965 and Springburn College in 1981. After merging with Barmulloch College, its name changed to Glasgow North College. It is now a business centre
