Glasgow's Coat of Arms dates back to 1866 when the Lord Lyon first granted the city its patent. The emblems depicted within the armorial bearings go back much further in history, representing legendary incidents in the life of the city's founder and patron saint, St Kentigern, or as he was more affectionately known, St Mungo, meaning "the dear one". Glasgow has a long, eventful and colourful history. There has been a settlement here on the banks of the River Clyde since earliest times.

Although Glasgow has long been considered Scotland's industrial capital it has always been recognised that it's great rival Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland. Glasgow however retains it's unofficial title of "the second city of the empire", a claim that no other British city can emulate. Today Glasgow is one of the most multi-cultural and modern cities in the UK with good road and air links within the country and to the rest of Europe. It's situaton in West Central Scotland makes it an ideal recruiting centre not only for Glasgow but for Ayrshire, Dumfries & Galloway, Lanarkshire, Argyll and Central Scotland.

University of GlasgowGlasgow University is one of the oldest and most well known Universities in the world.The faculty of medicine enjoys an envious reputation. Many of the graduates who pass through it's doors join the University Officer Training Corps. This gives them the option of a military and medical career. Many have joined 205 and we continue to see Glasgow University as a strong recruitment ground for our medical officers. Again the crest of the University shows the images of Glasgow's Coat of Arms the tree, the fish, the bird and the bell indicating pride in the city.

The NHS in Scotland is, by far, our biggest recruitment centre. Based in a city, our main teaching hospitals, in Glasgow are heavily relied upon to supply Doctors, Nurses Professionals Allied to Medicine and many of our support personnel. We continue to look to the NHS not only in Glasgow but in the surrounding counties for our squadron personnel.
