About the memorial: A 3-Light window which uses the original medieval tracery. Put simply, the main subjects are: centre, Our Risen and Ascended Lord; left, St Michael the Archangel and at the right, St George. However, the whole window is a complex mix of imagery. At the very top is the Tiger of the Leicester Regiment cap badge. Below that are St Andrew and St Patrick. At the point at which the window splits into 3 Lights, Thurifer Angels waft clouds of incense towards two more holding a Crown of Life. At this point, the main subjects appear. On the left, St Michael with flaming sword, weighing the souls of the dead in his scales. In the centre, Our Lord is shown as the Agnus Dei appearing in a dazzling cloud at the Ascension whilst on the right St George stands with his lance reversed. The final level is one of worship around a scene of the Crucifixion, itself surrounded by a scroll with the familiar words from St John:15 (Greater love hath no man than this....). To the left and right are stylised representations of Army, Naval, RFC/RAF and Nursing personnel which might also include soldiers from the ANZAC and Canadian Forces.
