Interesting story behind this one; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Sheridan

When I saw the address on this one I went to see where the person died;

Volunteer here, spotted in a lane off West Prince's Street Glasgow. Revisited today and the stone is missing. The Inscription is a quotation from Writer Aaron Hill. “Tender handed stroke the nettle and it stings you for your pains. Grasp it like a man of mettle and soft as silk remains.” Any one know where this stone went to?

Volunteer here, not in a graveyard but located beside Kinning Park Church. Each bench is solid granite and is inscribed with a quotation. The church is in Eaglesham Place and the benches are placed between the church and Paisley Road West.

Volunteer here, in Pollok Park at the back of Pollok House is the stone dedication plaque pictured. It lists the Tenantry and Staff of Nether Pollok who served in the Great War 1949-1919. Not all survived and some have the word killed notated.

Volunteer here, In the Western Necropolis Glasgow there are Commonwealth War Graves located there. In particular I have noted the 11 Australian Army Graves with a Major of the Royal Army Medical Corps at the centre of the rear line. The group are located on the main road from the gate to the rear of the cemetery. On the left as the road comes out of a dip and rises.

I do not know the history of these plots but there must be story to tell.

My thoughts are the men were World War One wounded returned to Scotland for medical treatment. The units include Australian Infantry, Machine Gun Corps and Australian Artillery.

Some one had placed a single stem Poppy at each grave and I added a stick on poppy to each stone.

The Head Stone of the RAMC Major differs at the to with a check in each top corner. Looking to find out if this is to signify a female burial.

Worth a visit.
