Two-light window. Sir Galahad kneels before the grail.


designer: Walter Camm
firm/studio: T. W. Camm & Co.

Church of St Thomas a Becket, Wolvesnewton, Monmouthshire
south wall of the sanctuary

Designed by Walter Camm, the window was executed by Florence, Robert and Walter Camm at The Studio, Smethwick.
Part of the memorial to William Walker Hood of Tredean prepared by Camm & Co. It was paid for by his brother, James Hood. The subject was chosen in view of William Walker Hood's office as churchwarden, and ex-officio, his charge of the sacred vessels.


Details include the tree of the knowledge of good & evil; a sitting rabbit, symbolic of peace; the horse and dove are symbolic of the sanctity of the place.
