Memorial for Glasgow University student who fought in Great War
Franz Friedrich Schlor was the first member of the university to lose his life during World War One.
A German student who was killed during the Great War will be remembered in a service at the University of Glasgow.
Franz Friedrich Schlor was the first member of the staff and student body to lose his life during World War One.
A cross will be planted in his name, in what is thought to be the first time a German student from a UK university has been honoured in this way.
The university chapel was built as a tribute to the fallen of the Great War and memorial panels inside name the soldiers, doctors and nurses from this academic community who gave their lives.
But until now there has been no acknowledgement of the sizeable German community that was studying and teaching at the university at the outbreak of war.
The service will also pay tribute to the camaraderie between British and German soldiers during the Christmas truce where both sides laid down their arms, played football and exchanges snacks and stories.
