About the memorial: Two light Stained Glass Window. The left hand ight bears a figure of Courage with the dedication at the bottom, and the regimental badge in the canopy. The right hand light represents Purity. Note that Gwendolen Jones, commemorated in the right hand light does not appear in the CWGC register, so her death appears to have been unrelated to the war. The inconsistency in date formatting is apparently what was on the windows, it is not a data inputting entry here.
