Those remembered were Private Ian Norman Mackay, Private Allan Mills Fenwick, 2nd Lieutenant James Robertson Jack Mylles, 2nd Lieutenant James Alexander Chrystie and Surgeon William Miller. Their names will remain in the university’s memorial garden until 2018, where they will be joined with 750 further crosses. Memorial services will continue in the chapel during this period, with 10 minutes of hymns and prayer, followed by cross planting and a minute silence.
Members of the public and OTC/URNU are encouraged to stay aware of the upcoming dates to pay respects to the men and women of Glasgow University in these centenary services. This will include the upcoming remembrance of the first female student killed in the First World War on the morning of February the 14th.
Those seeking any additional information on the history of those fallen, and roles they played can read the university’s First World War Honour Roll, available on the University’s website. History of the individuals have been archived respectfully and in high details and serve as a relatable reminder of the sacrifices given by our alumni.
Lest we forget.
