Description
Four light stained glass window with tracery, and dedicatory brass plaque. The two centre lights form the main subject. The Christian soldier is shown as standing on the pinnacle of the mountains and is illustrative of the text “Well done, good and faithful servant�. He has fought the good fight and has kept the faith, and now bears aloft the standard of his faith, while an angel consecrates the principles involved in the flag and in the warriors completed task. The left hand light illustrates Truth shedding the rays of enlightenment from her lamp upon this darkened and sinful world, as symbolised by the crouching figure which bears on its back a burden. The right hand light depicts the benign influence of Charity, rescuing and succouring the soul enmeshed in the toils of sin and worldliness, as well as protecting the young from danger and trial. The tracery embraces the celestial sphere. Christ enthroned in Glory is in the act of blessing the warrior and is surrounded by the adoring throng of Angels.
