Glaswegians and military groups will attend the funeral of a military veteran who has no family. 

Yesterday The Evening Times reported that the armed forces charity SSAFA said they were notified of the funeral of William Dunsmore, who served in the Royal Artillery from 1956 to 1960.

The charity said Mr Dunsmore has no family and the only people expected to attend his funeral is a social worker and housing officer. 

Now Glaswegians and military groups have come forward to say they will give Mr Dunsmore "the send off he should have".

As The Evening Times reported last week, Mr Fisher's family took to social media to urge the public to come together at his funeral.

A crowd of more than 100 people turned up to St Alphonsus Church on London Road, right beside the legendary Barras market for his funeral.
