Window: 11, Chancel N, St Mary & Nicholas, Chetwode

Location in Church:
Chancel N
Type:
3 lancets
Subject(s):
St George slaying a dragon.
Subject(s) - Notes:
Some writers state that the figure is St Michael rather than St George. We consider that it is St George, in particular he has a shield rather than wings. He was also listed as St George in a report on the window's dedication in the Buckingham Advertiser of 18 Dec 1943, when it was noted that the subject was very appropriate for the conflict raging against evil forces at that time.

1943

This notice explains that in 1944 (after only 78 years) the window to Mrs Bracebridge was in such a bad state, that it was replaced with the current one, made by Leonard Walker, and donated by Ethel Green, in memory of members of her family.
