Description
Two bronze plaques on wooden backboards, one for each conflict- the WW2 backboard is the same size as the plaque. The WW1 memorial included a [now lost] stained glass window by Ward & Hughes of London which illustrated an idealistic phase of the conflict of the Christian soldier, who is seen kneeling before his Lord and upon whom is derscending the symbol of the Holy Soirit, with the promises of eternal peace and rest. The group is surmounted by cherubs, and the whole composition is surmounted by canopies and bases of a late perpendicular order of architecture. In the base angels are depicted holding the dedicatory scroll.
