Description
Oak Screen of four traceried wood panels with two stained glass windows. The windows are patterned in Gothic style with traceried top. One design features a cross encircled by a laurel wreath and the St. George’s cross in red at the bottom; another design is a cross encircled by a gold crown and either the St.Andrew’s saltire in blue or a shamrock in green at the bottom. The dedication is on a shield centrally above the door formed by the two central panels. Angled side panels give the names written in a single column on each in gold lettering using Roman capitals throughout. “The four panels in stained glass have embodied in their design a laurel wreath of victory around a sword, a shield of St. George with sunrise, symbolizing the dawn; a crown of glory surrounded by a circle representing Unity, and a shield of St.Andrew and the Shamrock, with the Cross of Suffering” (Northern Echo)
