On Saturday, July 22, 2006, Chris Henzler and his brother Adrian, toured the Glasgow area cemeteries, capturing photos of the Canadian soldier graves.

David McNay has contributed photos of the Airbles and Cambusnethan cemeteries, near Glasgow.

Some of the grave in these cemeteries are of Glasgow natives, brought home to rest by their families. Others are men that died in the hospitals in the Glasgow area.

Clicking on the thumbnail will bring up a larger copy of the image.
