Glasgow Cenotaph

The Glasgow Cenotaph is located in George Square, Glasgow.
The monument was unveiled on 31 May 1924 and is the place for remembrance ceremonies in the city.
The tall granite obelisk is decorated with a bronze sword above a carving of the Glasgow city seal. Two lions guard the entrance to the cenotaph. When we visited the George Square there was a chain across the entrance with a sign requesting that people did not use the space as a seating area and pointing out that this is not a playground for children - a sign of the times?
The inscription on the back of the Cenotaph states that 200,000 soldiers from the city served during World War I.
