Nicely photographed.
This stained glass must be an attempt to appease the members of those families who lost family members during the Great War and offer some dignity to the face of death. Remember those men who were turned to unrecognisable corpses by the fierce cruelty and reality of War and were burried in mass. We can't tell if their deaths were heroic. At the end of the day, heroes or not, they were dead victims. May God rest their tormented souls.
