About the memorial: Unpublished description of the stained glass design for the East Window at St. John’s Church, Newbury, by the designer Mr J. C. Bewsey, written August 12, 1919. "The figures chosen are St. George, Patron of England, & the Blessed Joan of Arc, whose name lives in the Army of France as that of St. George does in our fighting forces... The little picture of the crucifixion is a reminder of the sacrifice whereby all victories must be won & gives the necessary contrast to the triumphant figures above. In the main piece of tracery is the figure of the ‘woman clothed with the sun & the moon as her footstool,’ the accepted representation of the Church Triumphant under the type of the Blessed Virgin; the words around are St. John’s description of the Vision from the Book of Revelations."
