The Sir William Glasgow Memorial is a heritage-listed statue of Sir William Glasgow located in Post Office Square at 270 Queen Street, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Set on a granite plinth, the statue is a naturalistic bronze figure of Sir William Glasgow, wearing the uniform of an officer of the Australian Light Horse and holding a pair of field glasses. The statue was one of the last commissioned works of sculptor Daphne Mayo. It was commissioned in 1961 and completed in 1964. It was dedicated in a ceremony on Remembrance Day (11 November) 1966 by Sir Arthur Fadden (Australian Prime Minister in 1941).

Originally, the statue stood on the Police Reserve at the corner of Ann Street and Roma Street, Brisbane on a sandstone plinth. In 1968, it was moved to a triangular reserve bounded by Albert Street, Roma Street and Turbot Street.

In 2004, the statue was listed on the Queensland Heritage Register.

In 2008, the statue was relocated to Post Office Square, facing ANZAC Square.
