History

The Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities Officers Training Corps was created in 1965 following a merger of the Glasgow University Officers Training Corps and the University of Strathclyde Officers Training Corps.

The Officers Training Corps provided a link between the armed services and the universities, giving an opportunity for students to see how the armed services operated. It also gave basic military training to students considering joining the Regular and Territorial Armies.

Any student at any College of Further Education in Glasgow (Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities, Paisley Technical College, Jordanhill, Notre Dame, Glasgow College of Technology and Building) was elible to join the Officers Training Corps.
