Academicals / Wednesday, April 12, 2017 Civic commemoration of VC award

We were privileged yesterday to host the unveiling of a commemorative paving stone at our war memorial in honour of former pupil Lt Donald Mackintosh VC, who died at Arras on 11 April 1917.

A very poignant occasion and particularly special in the company of Lt Mackintosh's family, the Lord Provost of Glasgow, representatives of Glasgow University, the Scottish National War Memorial Trust, the Seaforth Highlanders and the Academy, including our CCF.

A short film of the commemoration can be viewed here.
