Exploring remembrance and the First World War

Memorial Chapel

Exhibition: The University of Glasgow and the Great War
Sunday 9 November 12:30 – 14:00
University of Glasgow Chapel

Following the University of Glasgow’s Remembrance Service on Sunday 9 November 2014 there will be an opportunity to visit the University of Glasgow Chapel, dedicated in 1929 as the University’s Memorial Chapel for the fallen of the First World War.

Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the Chapel and view Glasgow University’s Great War: the University Officer Training Corps, the first in a series of exhibitions on the University in World War 1. The current exhibition has been curated by Museum Studies postgraduate student Michael O’Brien.

There will also be project staff, volunteers and archivists on-hand to answer questions about the archive collections. There will be additional examples of First World War related records from the University and Scottish Business Archive collections as well as the opportunity to reflect on practices of remembrance.

This event has been organised as part of the UK-wide Explore Your Archive awareness campaign which runs all next week. Find out more about the First World War project by following their @GlasgowUniWW1 and their project blog.
