If you approach from the Kelvingrove Grove Art Gallery & Museum you will see the other side of this memorial first; the Lewis gunner laying down suppressing fire whilst his lantern jawed brother in arms strides confidently forward towards an unseen enemy.
But this is the other side.
Note the Poppy, very carefully placed, in the hand of the fallen figure (presumably on Remembrance Sunday).
