About the memorial: The three east windows show the Mystery of our Redemption, all three windows are placed above the altar of the chapel. Beneath the second window of the three, is the name of the donor, of all three windows as the members of the clubs in Grimsby & Cleethorpes as thanksgiving for victory. 1939-1945. The first light of the first east window shows the Transfiguration, and the words of the fifth verse of the Magnificat “His mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations” On either side of Jesus stand Moses and Elijah, representing the old generation and kneeling below are the three disciples of his own generation. Below are the lanterns and torches of those who did not ‘fear Him’ but arrested him in the garden. The second light shows Jesus entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and the verse “He has shewed strength with his arm, he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts”, but underneath is the scourge which lashed Him a few days later, and this incident is shown at the top of the next window. The second light shows Jesus entering Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and the verse “He has shewed strength with his arm, he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts”, but underneath is the scourge which lashed Him a few days later, and this incident is shown at the top of the next window. The last window, the fifth light shows the final scene at Pentecost, with the disciples receiving the Holy Spirit in tongues of flame and the words “He remembreth his mercy hath helpen his servant Israel as he promised to our forefathers , Abraham and his seed forever”. At the base of the fifth light are the dice used by the soldiers to gamble away His clothes. The sixth light sums up the Redemption by attempting to show the nature of God as the Gloria is sung as “Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost Amen”. The Magnificat ends and at the base of the sixth light is the seamless robe worn by Jesus at his crucifixion, the prize of the soldier who won the dice game.
