Window:
A beloved younger son William Philip Dales of Little Humby who did not return from an operational flight over Ostend 5th November 1941. Aged 22. The window depicts a Sgt Pilot (Royal Air Force) and the face seems to be some sort of photographic reproduction of the actual face of Dales rather than the usual stylised stained glass face, possibly interesting if you are connected to this man.
