THE GREAT WAR



The period of 2014-18 marks the centenary of the Great War. Major remembrance projects are currently underway for the 2014-18 period and there are numerous events taking place  marking the anniversary. Gartcosh, like communities the length and breadth of the nation, has a War Memorial dedicated to those who lost their lives.

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."
