Saint Mary's Church, Waterloo Park


The second window is a more delicate and far more peaceful composition depicting Jesus walking on water in the left lancet, while St. Peter is on a boat in the right lancet. Given the nature of the theme and the fact that it would look more in place surrounded by the windows on the North wall, one could think that perhaps all the windows on this wall were originally meant to represent saints or different episodes of Christ's life, and at a later stage it was decided that they would commemorate the lives of those who died in both wars. Or maybe some older windows were destroyed and then replaced by the ones we can admire today, but one thing is obvious: this window seems out of place on this wall!
