this window originally?
putting this image on the website in the hopes that someone
somewhere will know where this beautiful stained glass window
was originally located.
It is currently
for sale in an antique shop on Vancouver Island, British
Colombia, Canada. The owner has been unable to get much info on
the window other than that the window came from the north of
England, shipped to Vancouver B.C. in 1969 and until quite
recently had been in storage before being brought over to the
Island. The window looks to be a memorial or tribute to the WW1
medical services. It measures approx. 6' x 2' and is titled "The
Sacrifice - Faithfull unto death" and is in excellent condition.
windows were often removed during WW2 for safe keeping. It was
for some reason never replaced in its original home. Being such
a special window I'm sure it has a story to tell. Maybe one of
the many visitors to this website might recognize it or have
some information to share.
with info can contact us via
the Visitors' Book.

They are beautiful,
aren't they! Many thanks to Steve Hughes on Vancouver Island who
provided these images and who set this trail going.
Update 18 September 2009: Sue
Light has set this up as a topic on the Great War Forum website. The
thread is here:
There are already some interesting and helpful responses. I like the
idea, from 'ianw', that the window could find its way to the RAMC
