Description
Two light stained glass window with figures depicted in each light. Across the base of both lights is an inscription in black Gothic caps, the capital letters and the number 5 being highlighted in gold. The window is formed of two depressed round-headed lights with bevelled plastered brick mullion in between, set in a four-centred arch. Both lights have an outer fillet edging of a black leaf design alternating with gold quatrefoils and a gold leaf and fruit motif. A gold-edged acanthus-style leaf design acts as background for both figures. In one light is a standing nimbed figure of the Archangel Michael, helmeted in gold and armoured, with chain mail below and folded wings with plumes of a darker gold. He wears a cloak of deep blue held by an oval morse with a central rectangular red stone. The lining of the cloak below shows green foliate decoration. The buckler round the waist carries a sheathed sword at the left hip. His left hand holds the top of a shield which rests on the ground behind the left hip and bears a sunburst design. Tussocky grass ground. The figure in the other light is St George, with gold-rayed nimbus. He wears a close fitting golden helmet and a deep red cloak pinned on the left shoulder with a morse in the shape of a letter G. A baldric runs over his right shoulder, buckled at the waist. Beneath is a white tunic, figured with gold lions passant. Both his arms have chain mail gauntlets. The right hand holds an unsheathed sword with a gold hilt. The legs and feet are encased in armour, and he is standing on tussocks of green and gold grass. The left hand holds a lance with a pennant, bearing a lion passant, stretching out behind his head and the shaft resting on the ground. There is an closing quotation mark but not an opening one. Below light 1 is the badge of the R.F.C. and the Dragoon Guards below light 2.
