Great War Memorials, Glasgow Cathedral

Memorial to Highlanders. The names are legible but the inscription below them is all but unreadable. At the time of visiting I was given to understand this was a memorial to men who died in service in India but it seems it is a Great War Memorial. There is a memorial to campaigns in India nearby.
