A refurbished memorial has been unveiled to seven men who died in a blaze on the south side of Glasgow 40 years ago.
The Kilbirnie Street Disaster claimed the lives of a firefighter who became trapped by collapsed shelving in a burning warehouse and six of his colleagues who went to rescue him.
All seven were engulfed in flames just after Fireman James Rook had been pulled from the rubble on the attic floor of the cash and carry warehouse in Kilbirnie Street, Tradeston, on August 25 1972.
On the 40th anniversary of the tragedy, Glasgow's Lord Provost Sadie Docherty unveiled a memorial to 11 firefighters, including the seven who died in Kilbirnie Street, at Glasgow's Necropolis, before a memorial service.
Hundreds of retired officers attended the service to remember their colleagues. Some current firefighters were dressed in traditional uniform with lancer jackets and metro helmets and formed a guard of honour as retired officers walked to the memorial site.
Chief Fire Officer Brian Sweeney, who addressed the crowd, said: "I can assure the families of the firefighters whose names are on the memorial that as long as there is such a thing as a Fire Service family, those firefighters will always be remembered."
Among those attending was one of two survivors of the Kilbirnie Street fire, Brian Murray, who had just crawled down to the first floor of the building when the seven victims were hit by a flashover - an intense burst of heat of up to 1,000 degrees.
He said: "The closeness of the firefighters led to him going into the building to help others get out.
"Everybody knew everybody in the service, there were a lot of families involved with fathers and sons working together and that was the same across all of Glasgow.
"There was great togetherness in the fire service because you were always working that close with people. It was the same with the guys that died - everybody knew them on the day and that made it harder."
The six men who died along with James Rook were Divisional Officer Andrew Quinn, Leading Fireman Alastair Crofts and Firemen Iain Bermingham, Allan Findlay, William Hooper and Duncan McMillan.
Their names had previously been on the side of a memorial to the 14 firemen and five members of Glasgow Salvage Corps who died in the Cheapside Street explosion in 1960, when a whisky bond warehouse went up in flames.
When the Cheapside monument was scheduled to be cleaned, it was decided that the Kilbirnie Street victims should have their own dedicated memorial.
The new memorial also commemorates the last firefighter to be killed in a blaze in the Strathclyde region, Sub Officer Adrian McGill, who died in a tenement fire in Maryhill Road on November 18 1972.
Three other firefighters have their names inscribed on the memorial: Station Officer William Clark, who died in a house fire in Cumberland Place in November 1967, Sub Officer Archibald McLay, who was killed in November 1969 in a fire at the STV studios in the Theatre Royal, and Station Officer James Matheson, who died in March 1971 in a tenement fire in Deanston Drive.
A Fire Trail of pavement plaques was also unveiled following the memorial service, commemorating the deaths of 44 officers between 1832 and 1972.
