St John's Anglican Church stained glass window for the Great War

Description: 

A large window with two main pieces, one dedicated to Saint Mark and the other to Saint George. Above both is a tiny window with a golden cross on a red background. At the top of each pane is a flower - a waratah for St Mark and a poppy with St George. Immediately beneath each flowers is a scroll bearing a scripture verse. At the very base of the windows is the main inscription.

 

Inscription: 

[Scrolls] Greater love hath no man than this. They died without hate that love might live. [Banner in St Mark's pane] St Mark's Day 1915. [Banners in the lower part of both panes] Hallowed in Christ be the memory of those who died the death of honour for the freedom of the World. They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old, Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn, At the going down of the Sun and in the morning we will remember them. [Inscription at the base of the window] AMDG [i.e. To the greater glory of God] This memorial window was given by the parishioners of Camden in proud thanksgiving for those who gave their lives in the Great War which began 1914.
