The windows, of exceptionally beautiful design, form the three lights of the western wall. On each there is the text, touching in significance — "Blessed are the pure in heart"; "I will give thee crown of life"; "Be thou faithful unto death"; and fittingly with the central figures the Shakesperian quotation, "Thrice is he armed who hath his quarrel just." The dedication inscription runs, To the glory of God, and in loving memory of Gavin Arthur Wilson, lance-oorporal 1st London Scottish, who died of wounds in France, 31st August, 1918 — Corona Victrix."
