  • This war memorial is situated in Kelvingrove Park, at the entrance to the car park of Kelvingrove Art Gallry. It honours the Cameronians, formerly a Scottish Regiment of the British Army. The statue depicts three figures of soldiers, one in a trench firing his Lewis machine gun, another wounded atop the trench and the figure in the centre bravely advancing out over the top. A worthy memorial and nice to see that it's always kept clean and tidy
