Pictures from the Somme visit

B Company cadets take part in a service to commemorate the Battle of High Wood, where on 15 and 16 July 1916, 192 men of the Glasgow Highlanders TA Battalion were killed in action.

The memorial cairn comprises 192 stones, one for each man lost – with the cobble at the top taken from a Glasgow street.  The cairn stands 5 foot 7 inches tall, the minimum height to join the Glasgow Highlanders at that time.

The picture includes families of some of the soldiers involved in the Battle.
