Highland Light Infantry's Glasgow battalions database

Glasgow City Archives has launched a new First World War database giving details of almost 2800 men who served in the 1st and 2nd Glasgow battalions of the Highland Light Infantry, aka the the Tramways Battalion and the Boys' Brigade Battalion. The database, drawn from data collated by volunteers John and Margaret Houston from Glasgow City Archive's holdings, is available in the form of an online PDF document at It includes details such as rank, religious denomination, height and even boot size.

Stuck for a Christmas gift?! I have a series of genealogy books available in the UK, Australia and Canada, on Scottish, Irish and British based subject areas. Further details at Santa approves!
