Two central lights of a four-light window with the kneeling figure of an airman in a landscape by the sea, with the Risen Christ appearing to him on the sea. Rays of light shining down and the badge of the RAF (an eagle with the motto 'Per ardua ad astra') above in a quatrefoil.

technique: stained glass

artist: Christopher Charles Powell

Robeston Wathen Church, Robeston Wathen, Pembrokeshire
north wall of the nave

The window is similar to the work of Christopher Charles Powell. The faculty for the window is dated October 1947, and the window is dated 1947 in the 1952 Directory published by the British Society of Master Glass Painters.

The choice of the focus on the Royal Air Force reflects the fact that the surrounding area had several RAF stations during the Second World War.
