About the memorial: Remnants of a stained glass window commemorating 2nd Lt Harvey Priestman Flint MC Original location St Saviour's Church Leicester The At Risk War Memorials Project, undertake research as part of their work. One of the subjects of their research was war hero Harvey Priestman Flint. Flint was born in 1891 in the Parish of St Peter's, Leicester and was the eldest of six children. The family lived at 60 Ashbourne Street adjacent to Spinney Hill Park. Flint enlisted on 10th December 1914 and was sent to France on 17th July 1915. Jis body was never found. His family commissioned a stained glass window made by Harrods of London, and installed it in the Memorial Chapel at St Saviours Church Leicester. The Church closed in 2005 and tragically both the chapel and the stained glass window were subsequently destroyed by vandals. Only these fragments of the window remain. According to the CWGC casualty record, he served with the 9th Bn, attached 8th Bn Leicestershire regiment. He died on 27 May 1918 and is commemorated on the Soissons Memorial at Aisne France.
