Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to the
University of Glasgow Story. Through this website, the University pays tribute to the talented men and women who have made a contribution to the development of the University
over the past six centuries.
The University's reputation and standing as one of the world's leading universities is built upon the work of those men and women who have studied, taught and undertaken
pioneering research here. It is also built on the network of alumni, friends and partners who support the University's activities in all sorts of crucial ways. In this website,
we tell their story and the part they have played in the University's 550 years of innovation and excellence. I hope you will find this site interesting and informative and that
through its pages you will have the opportunity to relive the remarkable Glasgow Story which continues to this day.
Professor Anton Muscatelli
Reverend A Drummond Duff was among the repatriated prisoners-of-war welcomed at Leith by Lady Darling. Duff was the minister of Mearns Church in Newton Mearns, Glasgow, and was a graduate of the University. He had been serving as senior chaplain in the 51st Division when he was captured by the German Army at St Valery in the summer of 1940.
Duff had served in the First World War as a combatant officer in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, when he was wounded and lost his arm.
