about 1917

Two-light window with Justice, a winged angel dressed in Roman armour carrying a sword and Sacrifice, a winged female figure holding a sheathed sword standing on a wounded soldier. Marching soldiers behind; a sun radiates light from the tracery light.

technique: stained glass

Church of St Peter, Lampeter, Ceredigion
north wall of the nave

The window is probably the work of Clayton & Bell. Text below the figures: 'There shall dawn a radiant peace'.

The window was given in memory of John Charles Edmund Davies (2nd Lt Royal Welsh Fusiliers), who was mortally wounded on 9 April 1917, the first day of the Battle of Arras.

The armoured figure on the left appears to be a representation of the archangel Michael.
