About the memorial: From the Parish website in 2015, which no longer existed when this report was compiled in May 2020: The Windows The Chancel Windows behind the pulpit were installed in 1951, paid for with compensation for war damage, the earlier windows having been destroyed in the blitz. They are by Douglas Hamilton, Glasgow, and are built in the tradition of Wren in the English Renaissance style. The themes are the Blessings and Mercy of God. In addition to biblical scenes, the arts and local industries are featured. Their post-war date is easily identified by a depiction of the blitz and the Free French monument on Lyle Hill. Children like to try and list the many animals portrayed. Only 2 of the 30 original stained glass windows survived the blitz and were restored in 1951. NOTE- It is not clear if this is one or two windows, so recorded together for now, can always be broken out to separate reports if needed, in due course
