Memorial Window to Sub Lieut. Tim Evelyn Evans
Designer: Leonard Walker (1877-1964)
Leonard Walker, who studied the St. John's Wood Art School, London, started producing stained glass at the end of the Victorian period. His hallmark was the use of uneven slab glass to create "lustrous effect and many subtle colour variations" ("Summary"). This window to a young man who lost his life in a submarine during World War I is rightly described as "striking" (Cherry and Pevsner 342). It also carries a poignant message: the star beams brightly on the choppy water, and inscribed at the foot of the scene are the words, "Then be not sorry like men without hope" from 1 Thessalonians 4,13.
