Church of St Nicholas and St John, Monkton, Pembrokeshire
south wall of the nave

One of two windows given, the whole dedication reading: 'To the Glory of God and in grateful recognition of the men of this Parish who volunteered in the Great War. And in memory of those who sacrificed their lives for King and Country. These windows are erected by Friends'. The other window depicts Alban and David and both windows may be the work of Percy Bacon Brothers, who made the windows for the north chancel chapel at about the same date.
