about 1920
Five-light window. Christ in Majesty is shown in the upper central light between angels, over a scene with a priest offering the Eucharist to kneeling soldiers. with Moses, Elijah, Patrick and George to the left, and John the Baptist, Paul, Andrew and David to the right.

technique: stained glass

firm/studio: Charles Powell

Church of St Jude, Swansea
east wall of the chancel

Dedication: 'To the Glory of God and in Grateful thanksgiving for a victorious Peace 1919. This window is erected by Matilda Lennard.'

The window is included in the lists of windows by Charles Powell and successive lists by Christopher Charles Powell published by the British Society of Master Glass Painters. It is dated as 1927 and as 1937 in the Directories, and although 1927 would be reasonably consistent with the window stylistically, a date closer to 1919 seems more likely.
