St Michael, St George and St Alban, by C. E. Moore in St Martin's, West Acton, London. This is the third window in the south aisle. The light depicting St Michael, with his flaming sword and scales of justice, was given in thanksgiving for the safe return of many of those in the congregation who went to war, while that featuring St Alban, in his Roman garb, remembers one who was killed in North Africa in 1943, while serving in the Royal Tank Regiment — also his father, who died in 1945. Both these are post-1945, then, though the one in the middle, of St George triumphing over a very convincing-looking dragon, was given by "members of the Children's Service 1925-27."
