About the memorial: Single light Stained Glass Window. It depicts Christ in majesty with a Bishop's crown surmounted by a cross in his left hand and his right arm raised in blessing. Above his head is a shield bearing the Paschal Lamb. The dedication is on the foot of the window. Note that he was lost on HMS Sargasso which was mined and sunk off the Isle of Wight, with the loss of 21 of the 25 crew. It is unclear what role HMS Bridlington played in the story- whether she was his first ship, or one of the rescue vessels.
