Three-light window with standing figures of Joshua, the archangel Michael and Pabo Post Prydain.

firm/studio: Jones & Willis Ltd

Church of St Dunawd, Bangor-on-Dee, Wrexham
north wall of the north aisle (window number: nV)

The window is signed by Jones and Willis, who also signed one of the other two windows in the north wall.

The window was given as a war memorial, probably at the same time as the neighbouring window, which is also a war memorial but with saints rather than military figures. The central saint in the neighbouring window is Dunawd, the son of Pabo Post Prydain (Pabo, Pillar of Britain), and patron of the church, an early abbot of the monastery at Bangor-on-Dee. According to Welsh tradition, both father and son retired from military and secular life and embraced a religious one.
