This plaque was added to Charles Rennie Mackintosh's celebrated Celtic Cross (Mackintosh's first commission) which was erected in Glasgow's Necropolis as a gravestone for former Chief Constable of Glasgow, Alexander McCall. The plaque was removed from the cross following the crosse's vandalism in the 1990s. A fibreglass copy has now taken its place on the reconstructed cross.
