Two-light window with Christ receiving a kneeling soldier presented by St George.

technique: stained glass
size: 52 cm (width of each light)
firm/studio: Wm. Pearce & E. Cutler

Llanthewy Road Baptist Church, Newport
side wall

Signed W. Pearce and E. Cutler, Birmingham.

Dedication: 'In memory of soldiers from the Church who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918.' The features of the kneeling soldier may be taken from an individual portrait, though as the window is in memory of all the members of the church who fell in the war, it is probably an idealised one. It is interesting to compare the strong features of the soldier with the weak ones of both Christ and St George.
