Floral display to the 51st Highland Division

A photograph of a floral display to the 51st Highland Division at Port Glasgow.

The 51st Highland Division was a British Territorial Army Division which saw action during World War II. Originally commanded at its formation by Major-General Victor Fortune, it formed part of the British Expeditionary Force. After the capture of two of its brigades in France, the division was effectively disbanded. In August 1940, the 9th Division was renumerated as the 51st, and served in the North African Campaign.

Port Glasgow is the second largest town in the Inverclyde council area of Scotland.
