The South Wall windows.

The four double lancet windows we can admire on the South wall were created to commemorate the deaths of four local men, two of whom were killed in action, and for that reason it is not surprising to find saints depicted as soldiers. Apart from the window whose main theme is Jesus walking on water, this is a group of very "masculine" depictions.
The first window shows St. Alban and St. George and reads: "In loving memory of Lawrence Frank Milner, aged 22, killed in action in 1915". St. George is depicted wearing armour and a helmet.
